Getting started in the lab: Penn bureaucracy

Here's a little help with some of the basics of getting started at Penn.

  • The first step is to get a PennKey. This is required for a lot of Penn-related services, including getting your PennCard.
  • The next step is to get a PennCard. This is required to get access to various facilities and services at Penn, including the lab itself. The easiest way to get the card is to go to card services, 150 Franklin Building on Walnut street.
  • Once you have a PennCard, e-mail the card number to me and I activate the card for access to the lab.
  • Your PennCard will give you gym access, but only if you get a membership.

Getting started in the lab: computing

The aim in the lab is to try and organize things electronically as much as possible.

  • We use Google for a lot of internal lab stuff, like sharing documents and protocols, etc., so a good first step is to create a Google account (if you already use Gmail, then no need to do anything, your Gmail account is sufficient). I use Gmail as my primary e-mail and set my Penn SEAS e-mail to forward to it.
  • Send me your e-mail address and I will add you to the Google mailing list for the lab. We use this list for all lab-related announcements, events, discussion, etc. We also post information on there about the group meeting schedule. Here is the website.
  • Once I have your Google account, I will share the lab calendars with you. These calendars contain useful information about lab events, microscope schedules and seminars.
