Last week we all gathered in the bioinstrumentation lab to get some hands-on experience building microscopes. After two hours of excellently-delivered, high-quality teaching content from Domenic, two coffee trips, one lunch trip, and a birthday celebration, we built a two-color epifluorescence microscope. It was a lot of work, but in the end we were able to image our own cells, and we were even able to see our tagged loci. Watch out Zeiss!
This August we took a small break from our cutting edge research at the bench to celebrate the summer with axe throwing! Everyone put up their best fight, but ultimately Sarah was crowned the Axe Throwing Champion. The lab is now fully equipped and prepared for whatever the Fall semester throws at us.
