Hi there! My name is Lance Lafontaine.

I am a student at Concordia University in software engineering, with a previous degree in molecular biology. I enjoy all things tech, science and startups, but I especially love web development, open source software, and camping (outdoors).

Chat with me @LanceLafontaine or lance.lafontaine92@gmail.com, I love meeting new people in virtual and physical settings.

A BAC might work. Thank you for the advice. You should turn your comments into an answer.

I'll most likely be working with E.coli. Putting aside differences in transformation, would there be any reason to suspect differences in functional expression of each gene? (If there is, I've never heard of it. It would seem like genes should get expressed equally in no matter what lengths of nucleotide).
