La Jolla-Riford Library Launches Public Biotechnology Lab
The La Jolla-Riford Branch Library has launched a public biotechnology laboratory that aims to increase public knowledge, assist entrepreneurs and teach students about biotech jobs. The lab includes microscopes, DNA copying machines and a 3D printer for public use, and will be overseen by volunteer scientists. Rep. Scott Peters (D-Calif.) attended the official opening of the lab on Tuesday and said it would be a "test case" for adding biotech labs at other locations.
