So today was the coolest day of lab by far. I filtered my lycate from my 10 plate and then did both steps of the microscopy! Its absolutely insane that I’ve been able to be a part of this as a freshman. As soon as I got to band I told several people (upperclassmen) about it and some of them didn’t even know that Baylor even had an electron microscope! And ironically enough, the day I was super excited about my fancy bio lab it was “nerd day” for the band. (The last rehearsal of the week is always a spirit day and people dress up according to the theme) So while others wore suspenders and thick glasses, I just showed up and got to act like it! Even though it was far from acting.

But now that I think about it, I was in a rush to get to band and forgot to write all this in the lab notebook… looks like i’ll be stopping by tomorrow to do that!

    It is so great that we get to work on this as Freshman! This has been a great lab and I was so excited to get to see my phage on Monday. Lab just keeps getting better and better!!!

    I completely know what you’re saying about seeing your phage for the first time! I was really excited to and I even sent a picture of it to my brother, who was indifferent to say the least. I had to explain to him all the work we had to do to finally get a less-than-excited reaction from him, but it honestly didn’t matter, I was just so happy to finally see my phage.

    I agree that this is such a great opportunity! I feel so blessed to have great professors that are willing to teach us so much about the process of research.

    It’s like being a proud parent when you get to see them on the electron microscope isn’t it? It is such a great feeling to actually be able to see the things that you had been working all semester for and not just the clear lysogenic spots that they leave behind on a plate. šŸ™‚
