You can't take a photo of this, it's already gone.

This week I have been mostly... sleepy

I have been mostly playing with my new Canon 5D Mk II

I'm currently reading... White Gold Wielder, Stephen Donaldson

I am mostly listening to... Muse

I am currently... Writing a paper

When I should be... Working harder

I am most looking forward to... The Muse concert on Thursday :)

This weekend I am... probably cooking an Easter dinner for everyone.

The website for my lab

My brothers website

An amazingly good program that can recover lost/deleted photos

glad to see you're putting PCR reagents to good use, at last.

Well, the PCR machine here is too useless to accept plates, so the sticky things have been on a shelf for 5 years.

Dhamaka> PCR is a scientists version of gambling. It's a technique that, if on the off chance it decides to work, can amplify a portion of DNA, which you can then analyse (it's what the CSI people do when they do genetic fingerprinting). Most of the time, it's an entire days work down the pan.
