Have you taken or are you taking...
7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry) Not yet.
7.06 (Cell Biology) No.
7.02 (General Biology Lab) Nope.
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab) No - Biology is for me!
Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?
Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?
Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience
I worked in a lab with HST. I was fabricating microwells made of polyethylene glycol (PEG) with "stamps" made from DMSO. I was also printing A6 polymer into these microwells, hoping later to find any effects A6 had on the cells our collaborators cultured in them. I did not get to work with any of the cells (staining, passaging) or much work under the hood, but I got to do a lot of work leading up to that and making it possible.
Anything else you would like us to know?
I am basically a clean slate, as you can tell, and I am excited to get my hands on some good biology!
