The Genetics Society Summer Workshop ( #gsssw2016 ) was absolutely amazing. Everyone present had some novel research to present, and it was 2 days full of mostly genetics talk. We had our individual presentations, team debates, and a few guest lectures. All in all, a great, stimulative event. But most of all, the company present… Continue reading Brilliant

I’ve been feeling amazing… Continue reading Goals

Yesterday I made up some stock solutions of the buffers that I’m going to be using in my procedure. And today, I completed the… Continue reading Lab Time!
