Seminar

Total Quotes : 12
Feet Headphones

Fact About

One of the great things about working on C. elegans was the fact that it was transparent, and so when I first heard that seminar describing GFP, and realised, 'I work on this transparent animal, this is going to be terrific! I'll be able to see the cells within the living animal.'

- Martin Chalfie

Prove Very

You have to prove that the Freberg way will sell their product better than if they just did straight advertising. Whenever I give a lecture or seminar, that's what I try to get across to people. I hear very few radio commercials that sound like I could have written them or that they got the idea.

- Stan Freberg

Evening Minnesota

During my early years at Minnesota I conducted an evening enzyme seminar.
