WELCOME to Honors 177: Biotech & Art!

Hope you had a good break (so short!), and -- welcome to Honor 177: Biotechnology & Art class!

Please note: We will not meet this Thursday and instead, I would like you to login into the class website, view the assigned introductory lectures and readings and write your first blog.

Do include your response to her lecture in your blog if you plan to attend!
