It's been a fishy week...
here in the lab. Started the week with a power outage. Spent the rest of the week anticipating a delivery of herring that finally arrived this morning. UPS delivered late in the day once or twice this week, as opposed to mid-morning. FedEx, normally spot on all the time, has been a bit spotty instead. Later than normal delivery times, mislabeled packages, and delivery of packages via taxi! ...

Hello all. I’m Cullen, an intern here in Dr. Roberts’ lab. I’m pretty new to lab work and have been learning all sorts of techniques over the past two weeks. I’ve also been learning the major projects going on and methods being used for each. Wow, there’s a lot to know! But Dr. Roberts and Sam are really helpful and it has been fun. A little about myself: I’m a...

just cannot get enough of this good google stuff.
Well Fedex decided they wanted a room number before they delivered the trematodes, so we will have to wait one more day. Tomorrow will be actioned packed.. supposedly we will also get some hand delivered herring. Dropped through the lab today a couple times— looks like there might be an abalone gel flowing tomorrow and smelled like we will see some yeasties. Also, got an update on the...

Holy Google, Batman!
Google apps have been the theme for this week, here in lab. We’ve been rockin’ the Google spreadsheet and now Steven’s thrown the Google Calendar into the mix. I dig it. Google definitely does a terrific job of integrating all of their services. Soon, I’m sure we’ll all be able to buy personal GPS units so that we’ll be able to post our real-time locations...

I thought the spreadsheet thing was so neat decided to give a calendar a go. This should help keep track of when people are around and whats going on when your not.

Tushara started a primer database that I think will be very useful. The database can be seen here. I have taken the liberty of adding some columns and everyone should be able to add to it (and view anytime via the link). Let me know if there are any questions, suggestions, etc. —SR

Even with a power outage and a primer mishap, I would call it pretty good day. On the “half-full” side, in Lindsay first gel in the lab there were bands. More importantly it was very nice to see the one nice big blue yeast in the plates from the library screen. The former argues in favor of a primer database (that I will try to get started in Google spreadsheets), and the later (yeast)...
My first post
Hey everyone. I’m Lindsay, one of the summer interns in Dr. Roberts lab and this is my first ever blog post. I’m going to be a junior next year at Santa Clara University where I’m majoring in biology, and this summer I’m working with Dr. Roberts and Sam to learn lab techniques and get general research experience. I started last Wednesday and have pretty much been learning...

Parking is always a problem around here but I know that some students park in “the pit” down near recycled cycles where there is free two hour parking and other than that it is street or university parking (~$9/day). The cheapest place to park would be the Montlake park lot. Here is a link to different parking lots and fees
