The National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit “From DNA to Beer: Harnessing Nature in Medicine and Industry” is now at the LSU School of Dentistry Library! Come explore the history of biotechnology, and peruse our selection of related books and articles. The Dental Library is located on the third floor of the Administration Building, and the exhibit will be there from June 20th-July 8th.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Additional information about this exhibit can be found online: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/about/exhibition/fromdnatobeer.html.
MICROBES—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages.
Scientists, in partnership with industry, have developed techniques to harness the powers of these microbes. In recent years, headline-grabbing technologies have used genetically modified bacteria to manufacture new medicines.
A glimpse into the past reveals a history of human enterprise that has adapted these tiny organisms for health and profit. This exhibition explores some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use life.
The Dental Library has now designated two weekdays for 3D printing jobs: Wednesday and Friday.
We understand that the noise generated by the 3D printer can be distracting. At the same time, we want this technology to be openly available and conveniently usable for all students and faculty. As a compromise, we will restrict 3D printing to Wednesdays and Fridays so everyone will be guaranteed quality time in the library.
It should be noted that we may not always have 3D print projects going on the designated days; likewise, we may have to start a priority project on an off day. So please bear with us as we try to provide an accessible educational space for everyone to study, learn, and discover.
Come try out our 3D printer on Wednesdays and Fridays!
