On the 5th of March we started our X-Chem training at Diamond. After some testing with DMSO, today we started soaking 100 fragments on our crystals. Here Louise at work in lab36
Two new students have recently joined our group! Samantha is a MSc Biotechnology student and she will spend all the summer working on protein expression and purification…and maybe crystallisation!!! Ryan is a second year BSc Biochemistry student and joined our group supported by the UROP programme of the University of Essex. Today we will have our very first group meeting (no panic…there’s lots of coffee and cakes).
The web page of our group is working (miracle) and online! We all deserve a drink now!
