Summer is a great time to read books and get inspired for the year to come. Here’s a Top 5 list of my recommendations to read before summer ends.
1. Genentech: The Beginnings of Biotech
Genentech is considered the founder of the Biotech industry in the late 80s. It started from breakthrough science, crazy scientists and very risk-taking Venture Capitalist. This book is pretty short, 300 pages, but gives an insightful view of this great story. A must read for everyone interested in the field (everyone here at Labiotech MUST read it).
2. Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves
This book has been written by George Church from Harvard Medical School in Boston, one of the rock-star scientists in the field of Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology. His lab counts over 100 people, which has resulted in over 330 papers, 60 patents, and the founding of over 10 Biotech companies.
