Genomics on the Subway? (Genomicists of the World Unite! You Have Only Your Flow Cells to Lose!)

No, this isn’t some wacky microbiome study. I recently observed this at Cambridge’s Kendall Station:

I especially like the pseudo-populist angle. Though I have a better slogan: “E-llumina is E-litist!”

Or maybe: Sequencing For All! Genomicists of the World You Have Only Your Flow Cells to Lose!

Anyway, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised: the DC Metro looks like the back of a defense contractor magazine, so I guess it was a matter of time before ads like this showed up in one of the major global biotech hubs.

Still goofy as hell though.

    And just who is that bearded guy just to the right with the ice bucket doing that bizarre, old-timey wet bench work with the lights on anyway?

    (am assuming those B&W images are from the MIT History mural but I can’t tell who the bearded guy is from here).

    Mike – can I use this image over at my place (with full attribution of course)?

    Thanks.
