Your voices were heard in Senate today, and the Tobacco Free Campus Resolution was passed. Good job guys!


Don't forget: Today from 2-4 is the Biotechnology open house! Stop by to learn about some of the programs that Santa Fe has to offer and to learn about the biotechnology field! Our keynote speaker is Dr. Douglas Rodriguez, Senior Biomedical Engineer from NovaBone Products! Pizza will be provided.


Biotech Club: Our next meeting is Tuesday, October 18th at 3:30 PM. We are gearing up for our Biotechnology Open House. During the meeting we will be building the frame that is to completed during the open house. We are also working on providing pizza for the meeting and all meetings to follow. IT IS OF THE HIGHEST IMPORTANCE THAT YOU ATTEND. We have seen almost zero attendance for our first two meetings of the semester, and if this continues, we will forfeit all of our funds from Student Life. We have a ton of cool things planned for everyone, but if you do not attend, it will disappear forever. YOU NEED TO RSVP TO THE TEAM MEETING IN eCONNECT SO WE KNOW HOW MUCH PIZZA TO BUY.

Will GM Tomatoes be Used to Fight Diseases in the Future? - The Latest News

An interesting read, have a great Tuesday!

Scientists at the John Innes Centre have developed a new strain of genetically modified tomato that is able to efficiently produce industrial volumes of disease-fighting natural compounds such as Resveratrol and Genistein. This process could also be used to grow other natural chemicals in tomatoes.… database lists all of the biotechnology companies in the state of Florida...

Applicable Life Hack Pro Tip 1
*If your eye(s) is/are twitching it can be from fatigue, stress, caffeine, or staring at the computer screen for much too long.
**How to turn this information into a learning experience:
(1) Be ahead in your work/studies.
(2) Sleep enough (thus executing your need for energized elixirs).
(3) Take incremental breaks from straining sights.
It's simple but effective and conducive to succession; not only in preventative eye-twitching measures but also any overall progression.


Meeting at 4pm today!!!
