Sorry for the lack of notebooking today. I had to send a bunch of emails this morning, catch up on teaching work, and then had to write an informal CV this afternoon. Wanna see it?
Anyways, I’m doing the prep work for the E. coli studies and showing Alex how to use an autoclave. I also am getting into sterile technique and Alex will have something up later about all of this to which I will link.
Tomorrow we are going to mess around (and get triple doubles) in a safe environment and grow some e.coli and see what happens. I also hope to get my hands on some yeast. There are a few barriers before we can get any serious data. First I have to successfully grow microscopic creatures in small containers. I have to get acclimated to using the nanodrop as an OD measuring device. Then I have to do all this with different water types.
Fun times ahead.
