iGEM 2010: It Begins

I'm at MIT serving as a judge for iGEM 2010.  There are about 120 teams here, and more than 1000 students and team advisers running around, project posters everywhere one looks, and three days of presentations describing various new genetic bits and pieces to come.  The Registry of Standard Biological Parts runneth over.

I'll post pictures and comments as I can, though my duties as a judge will preclude saying too much before the conclusion on Monday.
