In coming up with “A window on new expression,” a couple based in Cleveland, Ohio, provided the answer that solved GEN’s Cryptogram Challenge: Electroporation.
Jodi Bubenik, Ph.D., a molecular biologist, and her husband, Peter Bubenik, Ph.D., a mathematics professor, said it took them three hours to figure out the puzzle after studying all nine clues. Jodi works at the Lerner Research Institute, which is affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic. Peter teaches at Cleveland State University. The couple, both Canadians, previously were graduate students at the University of Toronto.
GEN, its partner Scintellix and sponsor Bio-Rad Laboratories send a hearty congratulations to the husband-and-wife team. The Bubeniks receive two awards for solving the cryptogram. They win a $1,500 cash prize, and Jodi chose Bio-Rad’s 96-well MyCycler personal thermal cycler for research in the Driscoll Lab at Lerner Research Institute.
