This update covers about 5 of the last 7 days. I spent a bulk of my time looking at the timeline of the field’s development and what people’s hopes are for the future roadmap for biotechnology. I also spent a few days writing up some plans on how a company could be designed to do iPOP on a really large scale while staying open-source or at least transparent (more on this to come). This also involved prepping for a short meeting with a member of the VC community I met last year, and some of my close friends with a bit more entrepreneurial experience.
Link to my notebook entries here, and a bibliography of the reading I did below. Note that not all of my reading of these (especially the myriad research papers) was done equally as evidenced by the wildly varying space each paper takes up in my notebook.
