We're looking to commission something like 10-20 articles on transfection for a website we're developing, whatistransfection.com. I'm interested in hearing from lesswrongers in biotech or who are grad students in the field looking for some freelance writing work. You can email me at drethelin@gmail.com

For the curious:

Transfection is the process of deliberately introducing nucleic acids into cells. The term is used notably for non-viral methods in eukaryotic cells.

Anyhow, what makes this LW-related? Is whatistransfection.com a personal project? Academic? Aimed at selling a product?

I recall similar talk on the Open Cures mailing list for the related topic of protofection. No idea if this is related somehow or not -- who is "we" for the OP?

Ick ... that site is currently a parked domain showing pop-ups and stuff.

That's normal for sites that aren't live yet.
