If you have not had the privilege yet, I would imagine it reads like complete gibberish.
Now grab your white Russian, because mRNA 5 is coming together, one last time, via our favorite video conferencing service to watch and review Big Lebowski.
S1-E3: mRNA Interviews Green TU Delft
Who are the Green team? What are they doing to make our faculty greener? To answer these questions, our correspondent Margot Meersseman spoke to two of the members of the Green Team of Applied Sciences as they were in the process of launching their Instagram page. Puck represents Nanobiology at the Green Team, and Tim oversees Applied Physics. We asked them who they are and what they do at Green TU Delft.
S1-E2: mRNA Reviews The Social Dilemma
“Can’t stop looking at your phone? You’re not alone. The obsessive appeal of social networking isn’t a bug – it’s a feature.” That is the description you’ll find on Netflix for the docudrama The Social Dilemma.

S1-E1: mRNA Interviews John Van Der Oost
Professor John van der Oost is a Dutch microbiologist who works at Wageningen University. Van der Oost has delivered a major contribution to developing the field of CRISPR/Cas9. This is a revolutionising technique in gene editing, which is much like copy and pasting DNA.
Via Zoom, we talked about the technique, its future applications and Van der Oost’s role in the discovery of the system.
