On January 6, 2006, the Baserga lab will be hosting Genetics Happy Hour. With only a month before the event, it is time to choose a theme. Last year's theme was the 15 year anniversary of The Simpsons (flyer). Here are our choices for this year:
Three King's Day/Epiphany ... The 12th day of Christmas. We'd decorate with gold, frankenstein proteins, and mirth. Maybe advertise with three pictures of Sherm, "the three Weissmans".
Schoolhouse Rock premiere (1973) ... Knowledge is power...
Al Gore concedes the election (2001) ... Not quite a reason to celebrate, but interesting nonetheless.
Benjamin Franklin's birth (1706) ... American statesman and inventor
John Maynard Smith's birth (1920) ... English evolutionary biologist and genetecist
