    “When You Lick My Skin We See Roses” is a graphic musical score. The work depicts a psychedelic confluence of distorted musical symbols, explosive color fields, abstract visual imagery, and varying dimensions of spatial depth. Ultimately, this image attempts to not only radically re-imagine...

We are testing the efficacy of transgenic disease pea against fungal pathogens in comparison to the non-transgenic pea in confined field trials. When we have to compare transgenic lines, we not only...
