-|Oct 20, 2021|Dick Wagner: CRISPR\\  The acronym “CRISPR” (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeat) has often been invoked when considering recent revolutionary genetic engineering advances. This presentation will be devoted to the origin of the term, its biological significance, and how further knowledge led to the expansion of the meaning of this term as well as its underlying processes in genetic engineering. Finally, Dick will discuss the potential of CRISPR for deriving further molecular biological information and uses from experimentation and analysis.| yes | |+|Oct 20, 2021|Dick Wagner: CRISPR\\  The acronym “CRISPR” (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) has often been invoked when considering recent revolutionary genetic engineering advances.

 |Nov 3, 2021|Bretislav Friederich of the University of Berlin where he Professor of Physical Chemistry.  He is also a highly accomplished historian of science. He has just published a chapter in a book on the history of chemical warfare, germ warfare and other such technologies. His article is on Fritz Haber and his role in inventing chemical warfare during WW1.  Friederich will be at Harvard for the year on sabbatical.  He is an excellent speaker. (He is a colleague of Daniel Kleppner who recommended him) {{lctg:bretislavfriederichabstractonfritzhaber20210728.pdf|click to see the abstract of the talk}} Dan Kleppner will fup yes/no and dates | |Dan Kleppner | |Nov 3, 2021|Bretislav Friederich of the University of Berlin where he Professor of Physical Chemistry.  He is also a highly accomplished historian of science.
