On this special episode of the podcast, we have an enlightening conversation with friend and colleague, Alec Sullivan, on the nature of biological design. From bioluminescent trees to Amazon's new biodome building, we chat about the spectrum of biological design and the ethical issues that may accompany it. Could biological design truly be biology's "nuclear moment", as Alec calls it? Tune in to find out! You can find Alec on social media through Twitter (@thealecsully) and on his curated Facebook page, Mish Mash. --- Thanks for tuning in!
