In this new blog post series, we are asking researchers in the field of SynBio to explain their research topic in plain language. This comes from our need to improve our ability to explain our work to the people who don’t have the same skill set to understand the complex scientific jargon, for example: our grandparents! This can be done by “translating” our scientific language into plain language, which is defined as a language that is clear and easy to understand, without unnecessarily difficult words or jargon terms (1). Key words for this blog post: Synthetic Biology (SynBio) is an emergi ..read more
