Ask us anything!
On Monday, January 18, DNASTAR will be participating in our second Ask Me Anything, or AMA, on Reddit. An AMA is a crowdsourced interview where Reddit users can ask questions for the interviewee to answer and vote on other questions they would like to see answered. Questions will be answered by DNASTAR Senior Product Manager and molecular biology expert, Matt Keyser. Join us on Monday as we discuss bioinformatics, life sciences, and perhaps the meaning of life. Who knows where the conversation will lead?
