In for a Penny, In for a Pound: The Advanced Bioeconomy and all the pivots

December 28, 2017 |

It’s been such a busy cycle in the bioeconomy that we are well overdue for a shout-out to a pal of the Digest, Henry Threadgill, for winning a Pulitzer Prize for his landmark composition, In for a Penny, In for a Pound. Threadgill’s masterpiece (which you can experience here) comes to mind as news arrives […]
