PLOS Looks at the Importance of Synthetic Biology Communication

In a new article featured on the website of the Public Library of Science (PLOS), David Shifrin talks to David Rejeski, director of the Synthetic Biology Project, about A Guide for Communicating Synthetic Biology.

Shifrin and Rejeski's conversation focuses on the need for professional science communicators, how to push a scientific message out through non-traditional media, and why The Big Bang Theory is great for science geeks.
