Research shows the success of a bacterial community depends on its shape.
The Procurement Office will be sponsoring its annual vendor fair this week. On Thursday, Sept. 19, the fair will showcase office supplies, computers and furniture. On Friday, Sept. 20, vendors of scientific and laboratory supplies will be featured. Both events will be on McDermott Court (outside buildings 18 and 54) from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine.
Also at the vendor fair on Thursday, there will be an Office Depot catalog exchange where community members can recycle their old MIT course catalogs or other softbound catalogs and also pick up the 2002-03 version. The catalog exchange will be at the fair's Environmental Programs Task Force table from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
