Talk Topic: Design Biological Systems the ‘Lego’ Way
with Rajib Saha, Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical & Bimolecular Engineering, University of Nebraska–Lincoln

Legos are a popular children’s toy but did you know they also serve as a great analogy for biological systems? Many of the most complex challenges facing humans today, pollution control, plant and animal protection, and food safety can be tackled using a “lego” or building block approach! Dr. Rajib Saha will discuss the design process of biological systems to achieve a desired goal.
