Like everyone, my week in the lab featured it's fair share of ups and downs. Unfortunately, it also featured some stupid.
Successfully electroporated notoriously difficult strain after being told it couldn't be done. (Yeah, don't tell me that if you want me to stop.)
Purified six proteins (of 12) for final replicate. This means my paper will likely be out by the end of the year.
Cleaned up after one to many lab members and as a result, went off in lab meeting.
Dropped a bucket full of tubes containing turbid, smelly cultures. Of course, the tubes broke and there was glass and nastiness everywhere.
Performed FPLC without attaching the column to the machine. Doh!
