Comment on “Not failure…Just Results” by Chloe Sells

This was something I have had to tell myself countless times throughout the semester, especially when I realized I had been working on someone else’s phage haha. While your gel did come back negative for DNA, you have been successful in dozens of other aspects throughout this semester’s lab- for instance you have experienced something most college students wont have the opportunity to do, freshman research, and you have also learned numerous valuble skills that will help you in the lab in the years to come. So no, you definitely did not fail, and although results can sometimes vary from what we desire, they teach us something new which is a success in itself. 🙂
