We are plant molecular biologists, using synthetic biology to develop flowers that change colors throughout the day. Ask us anything!
My short bio: We are academic scientists working in the field of synthetic biology, and we left all that behind to start a company, move to Ireland, and make flowers that change color throughout the day. We're linking the plant's circadian clock to pigment modifying proteins, so that the flower will cycle between colors - red to blue and back again.
We're at the very beginning stages of this process and we welcome your questions on everything - academia, entrepreneurship, science, what the heck were we thinking, all of it. Nikolai will be answering mountain, cat, and ice cream based questions; Keira will take garden, book, and swing-dancing inquiries.
Break turned into sleep - back to answering all your questions now!
