We’ve gone sampling again with Shrek’s lab. Hope we find some new Pristionchus and new bacterial infections!
Our lab and members of Shrek’s lab from the Salk went sampling around the SDSU campus for wild nematodes in rotting fruits and stems. Let’s hope some of them are infected!
Day 232 (Jan 28, 2019). We’ve got scopes, incubators, PCR machine, freezers and fridges. Its time for experiments!
Day 173 (Dec 1, 2018). We have our Nikon fluorescent upright and stereoscopes ready and set up. Now we can take pretty pictures and do mutagenesis screens.
Day 121 (Oct 10, 2018) The incubators have arrive. Now the worms can get off the benches and into a more stable environment.
Day 103 (Sept 22, 2018). We’ve got stereomicroscopes coming in so we can see the worms. Now we can go sampling!
Day 45 (July 26, 2018). Demoing a Nikon fluorescent upright microscope. These worms have GFP expressed in the muscle.
Day 36 (July 17, 2018). Got a bunch of boxes to store our worms. Small victories!
Day 1 (June 12, 2018) of the Luallen Lab. An empty lab and office.
