Busy Bees!

Hey everyone! My name is Anas Owais, and I am from New Jersey! With Week 2 coming to a close, there’s a lot going on both outside and inside the lab. Let’s go through what happened today:

After a long series of issues with our chemostat, we not only were able to make a strain of bacteria that was completely resistant to our antibiotic, but also started a SECOND, completely custom, experiment on horizontal gene transfer!

As Dr. Manzella says, we are messing around and (will be) finding out!

After completing our lab work and the two psets we had due today, we had a genomics-themed movie night (hint: 🕷️).

Can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
