The lack of wifi in the conference rooms and the relative difficulty of getting on the conference center wifi even in the lobby is making this a bit rough. I'm back to phone blogging.
William Shih's talk on DNA origami was fascinating, but I didn't really get a sense of how likely some of these more complex structures were to form. They're pretty though!
After an excellent dinner with colleagues, much beer, and watching the American curling team get trounced by the Chinese, we came back for the national lecture, but got shunted into an overflow room. It seems like the conference planners just didn't plan for this vig of a conference.
The national lecture was good though. Roger Tsien really is a great speaker, and his work on genetically encoded EM reporters is really great.
Tonight there are three simultaneous sessions from 4 to 6 all of which I wan to attend: Biotechnology, Genome Organization, and Force Spectroscopy. Argh.
