059 - Mr. Barnett Goes to Washington

In this week's episode of the Beta Sandwich Science Podcast we discuss Scott's trip to Washington D.C. where he spoke to members of Congress about the importance of Basic Science research.  We also discuss a lot of science, to include: How DNA coding errors and aneuploidy may actually benefit you; Christian talks about some cutting edge stem cell research; Karolina tell you if insects are a viable protein/vitamin source; and the triumphant return of Dr. Del Jackson ends the show with a discussion on how ionic liquids are being used to kill bacteria.

Scott Article was based on this Scientific American article titled: Garbled DNA Might Be Good for You
