I witnessed this ground breaking, the culmination of SO many hopes and dreams for so long. Oxford college not only received a new library but got their dream of a new science building debt free. Brenham, one of the oldest dorms buildings, will be torn down and replaced with this new masterpiece. It will be the largest building on campus, with research laboratories and plenty of room to house the next generation of eager, young scientists. I even got to shovel a load of dirt myself! THAT I must say, was a real thrill.
What's going on in my corner of the science world? Want to know what the heck I do in lab or wonder what the life of a grad student is like? Need Orgo tutoring notes? Then this is the blog for you! Also, check out my FAQ about grad life and the Salaita lab. Look here for fun facts about lab members.
Rolling Statuses: Technical journal blog. Here you may discover what the daily life of a grad student looks like: day-to-day snippets of life, clutter, rolling statuses and unimportant fluff.
Progress Updates: Will include entries with more meaningful science.
Weekly lab report: My write-ups on what I did each week (I posted these publicly during my rotation but not as much now. That may change.)
Here is a link to collected writing, poster and presentation tips.
As of February 8, 2014 I have officially joined the Salaita lab!! Very exciting. Stay tuned for updates. "Micro Min" category equates to grad school journaling; most of these have moved to my status updates blog under Home tab. See "progress updates" on this blog for more important news.
