The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) wishes you all Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!. The already traditional ISTT Christmas Postcard has been conceived this year by Elizabeth Williams (TASQ, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia), who managed to engage the rest of ISTT council members to contribute with Christmas scenes taken from the places where they live or work, threfore providing all of us with the nice opportunity to grasp how the Christmas season is perceived and how cities are decorated in several countries around the world. All the 34 Christmas pictures shown here have been captured directly and kindly shared by ISTT council members, as follows: Brisbane-Australia (by Elizabeth Williams), Sydney-Australia (by Karen Brennan), Colmar-France (by Benoît Kanzler), Ridgewood-NJ-USA (by Wojtek Auerbach), Madrid-Spain (by Lluis Montoliu), Lexington-KY-USA (by Carlisle Landel), Irvine-CA-USA (by Tom Fielder), Salamanca-Spain (by Manuel Sanchez-Martin), Pasadena-CA-USA (by Shirley Pease), Berlin-Germany (by Boris Jerchow), Buffalo-NY-USA (by Aimee Stablewski), Ann Arbor-MI-USA (by Thom Saunders). Hope you all enjoy them!. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
