Welcome to the blog of reporter genes

«Call me 96well. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would pipet about a little and see the molecular part of the living world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen, and regulating the circulation. Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before failed maxipreps, and bringing up the rear of every journal club I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the P2 lab, and methodically knocking mice out - then, I account it high time to get to lab as soon as I can. This is my substitute for ipod and baseball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the Gilson multipipette. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the life with me.»
