Science City - Tucson Festival of Books

MCB participates annually in Science City at the Tucson Festival of Books. Our 2018 booth in the "Science of You" tent featured a hands-on activity where visitors could extract DNA from their own cheek cells and take home a necklace containing their DNA. We also presented some of the work of MCB faculty member Dr. Frans Tax, who studies plant growth and development. Our team of volunteers had a great time sharing our love of molecular and cellular biology with the southern Arizona community. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the weekend. 

We hope you'll stop by to see us in 2019!
