Hi everyone, Frank N. Foode™ here, and I think 2015 is going to be a good year! The plushies from our Kickstarter have finally made it to the U.S., updates are coming to GENERA, and an invigorating discussion about the future of Biology Fortified following a month of cyber attacks has inspired us to do more. We’ve got several projects in the works, and a campaign we’re preparing to embark on and we want to make it easier for everyone to stay informed and to help spread the word. Please consider joining our mailing list! What do you get by joining the Biology Fortified mailing list? Periodic updates and announcements about our projects, videos, important news and events, and ways that you can get involved. We’re planning on more volunteer opportunities, art projects, contests, and even a citizen science experiment (the seeds for this just arrived today)! Get informed about
Hello everyone! Frank N. Foode™ here to make an important announcement. October 31st – celebrated both as Halloween and the birthdate of this fine blog (what a coincidence?) is just around the corner. You know what that means?

Ok, enough talkin’ about that stuff – it’s time to talk about bringing one of my friends to life. If we can raise our Kickstarter pledges to $16,000 we will make a second plush, and we want you to help us decide. I’m going to tell you a little about each of their stories, and you can vote on which is the first story we can tell in plush form. Hawai’ian Papaya Ah, if you have heard any story about a genetically engineered crop, it should be about the papayas in Hawai’i!
