Hasta luego, Puerto Rico →
Unfortunately my Puerto Rican adventures have come to an end. I had a really great time on the island and want to give a big shout out to my travel buddy Elene who made the trip all that much…

Cheers from Puerto Rico →
Arrived in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Sat for the ASLO 2011 Aquatic Sciences meeting. Man is it hot here! Mon was the first day of the conference where we planted ourselves in the ecology of infectious…
Saludos de San Juan!
I have to say that San Juan is incredibly beautiful, the weather is amazing and everyone is super hospitable. (Oh, the wonders of sunshine.) Lisa and I are genuinely enjoying our ammenities in Old San Juan - good eats, crazy roads, and lots of history. The conference today was pretty awesome. Lisa and I were running from talk to talk and there were plenty of interesting OA talks this afternoon -...

I’m online! =) Thanks to the technical expertise of Sam and Steven. They even figured out how to publish page updates directly from iweb. Lesson learned: it pays to have computer nerd friends….

Lisa's Feb Goals
Great! Now I am accountable for stuff I say I’m going to do. Hopefully this will get the unproductivity monkey off my back. Jan was kind of a bust. I’ve hit bumps in the road with all of my projects. That, or I’ve been training so many undergrads that I can’t do lab work myself anymore :-/ Spent a lot of time working out differential staining techniques to determine nucleic acid type and...
Caroline's Feb. Goals
Just to refresh everyone’s memory (because I know you are all on the edge of your seats waiting for this) last month my goals were to work on developing the MS-AFLP assay and the telomere assay. Well, I tackled both projects and made considerable progress on getting the MS-AFLP assay ready for my population specific methylation patterns project (check it out here!) but have decided to drop the...

Mac's Feb Goals
The Neverending Sto-o-ry, na na na, na na na, na na na…still working on MSAP this month. I guess one could say January was a success because I was able to get the protocol written up and it seems to be working pretty darn well for Caroline and her salmon DNA. Oysters on the other hand are still challenging me. I am going to try a few different extraction techniques to see if this could be...
Emma's February Goals
The focus of this month is to survive my written exams. To attain that goal I am going to be doing a lot of studying and learning, so I guess the real goal is to learn. My other goal is to do a lot of planning. I need to develop a realistic game plan for OA trials with Pacific oysters starting in March. I would really like to design the experiment to include data on the heritability and...
Dave's February goals!
Not to pat myself on the back too hard or anything, but I did a pretty bang up job on last months goals. All of the qPCR for the Cu/Vt oyster challenge is done except for one final quality control test, we now have a clear game plan for the QPX samples which I’ll explain in a minute, and I completed the qPCR analysis of the QPX “tissue immerision” challenge, although the results were sub optimal....
