It was probably the month of august 2011 when I got a call from Siddharth who said he is calling from M.S. University, Baroda. He said to me that can I deliver a lecture in the FOOTPRINTS 2012, a technical festival in the month of February 24-26, 2012, organized by the students of engineering faculty. I wanted to see this nice and historical city of Gujrat I checked my diary and then told him that yes I can. He further told me that FOOTPRINTS will take care of my to and fro airfare and local hospitality.

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

The 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 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).
