Scientoon & Scientoonics

 

Pradeep K. Srivastava, the creator of scientoons has lent his support to the Research Cooperative in a brief posting at Science for Humanity.

The www.scientoon.com website tells us that:

"Scientoons are the cartoons, based on science. They not only make you smile and laugh but also provide information about new researches, subjects and concepts in a simple, understandable and interesting way."

I recommend members of this group to visit the Scientoon website and see! They did make me smile, though I do wish that minor changes could made in the English texts, here and there.

I visited Scientoon.com and browsed the gallery.
One of the scientoons that especially caught my attention was this one:
Synthetic Cell

This led me to search for news articles on the subject of Synthetic Biology.
Here is one of those articles (from the BBC, dated May 20, 2010):
Artificial Life Breakthrough - BBC

So, then, I thought I'd see if there are videos on this subject on YouTube.
Yes, there are many YouTube videos on this the subject of Synthetic Biology.
For example, here is one: "Introduction to Synthetic Biology" (57:13) - Andrew Hessel
(video uploaded November 7, 2009).

SCIENTOONIST ENCOUNTERS WITH NOBEL MAN PROF. RICHARD R. ERNST

On March 7, 2011, I was reminded by one of my friend to attend the lecture of Prof. Richard R. Ernst, A Nobel laureate from Switzerland in Chemistry in the year 1991. I almost ran to main auditorium of my Institute Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow which is in the other building across the road. Luckily I could manage to get one seat for me as the auditorium was almost full. Our director Dr T.K.Chakraborty was giving his welcome speech. After that, Dr Alok Dhawan, Secretary of the National Academy of Sciences Lucknow chapter invited Dr Ashish Arora to introduce Prof. Ernst.
