I'm doing a summer internship at a nearby medical school working in the genetics and microbiology department. I was given a project to work on and I've been going through and doing each step. My previous research was similar so I knew what I was getting into. I actually really like the work and it doesn't even seem like a job to me. But Jeeze does science take patience! I'm sitting here waiting for bacteria to grow so I can inoculate them to be ready for tomorrow's minipreps. Then I have to autoclave some media to pour about 80 plates and I'm currently waiting for some plates to warm up in the incubator so I can streak some of my other samples. Thank goodness we are allowed to be on the computer! I've been playing Spore these past few days. I figure its a suitable game to play in a genetics lab! LOL Next week I have to start working on a presentation and a research paper, so I'll have plenty to do then! What do you do when you are waiting for your experiments?
