BIOGRAPHY


Ph.D. Yale University 1981 in Molecular Biophysics. Working with Synchcocystis 6803, I pioneered the first genetic method to engineer the light reactions of photosynthesis (Michigan State U, Plant Res Lab, 1983 with Lee McIntosh, Syn 6803 from Peter Wolk). Later worked for DuPont, developed RAPD markers, automated lab processes for marker-assisted breeding. Finally worked at LI-COR developing a technology for single-molecule DNA sequencing; patents sold to Pacific Biosciences who solved outstanding technical problems and brought the technology to market. I am now retired in Maine doing large-scale vegetable gardening. From my experience at LI-COR, I became interested in measurements of the kind done by the MultispeQ. I am excited by the low-cost alternative to LI-COR instruments represented by the MultispeQ. I would love to own one to make measurements in my garden, in neighboring organic farms, and in the surrounding forests.
