Hello everyone! This week I started off at learning more about Genspace, the lab I’ll be working at for my project. I took part in a lab training where I learned how to navigate and utilize lab material for my project. After that, I started finalizing the things I need to be able to collect DNA for my project, as well as ordering the reagents and buffers for the DNA sequencing.
In order to keep track of all of my notes and protocols for my experiment, I am using the software platform “Benchling”. I think of it as a sciency-version of google docs. You can keep track of DNA sequences, protocols for experiments, and even create your own primers for PCR. My next step is creating pre-experiment surveys to send out to my participants.
Thanks for reading!
