    That's unfair, gogsoc is:
    Marxism, post-modernism, complaining, tea, lack of funding and classical references.

    Gah... my supervisor is sending me not-so-subtle clues in journals. In a short review she wrote in Science the other week, talking about work directly related to what I'm doing, featured the phrase "...offers a tantalizingly diverse range of potential extensions and applications. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get back to work!", and in another yet to be published in Angewandte: "More work is necessary..."

    (and yes, that is just a repost of something I've just said in the Dissertation thread in GUD. I thought you might appreciate it )

    cp, don't journals get submitted months in advance of publication? :p:

    The Science one was a quick response/analysis on a paper published a few weeks ago (I think she was one of the reviewers), and the Angewandte review was subject to some very last-minute editing because of the impact of the previous paper.

    I don't like structured days that involved being awake before 8am, it isn't natural :dry:
    I'm not much of a fan of being awake before 11am, but that's my bit.

    Mwahaha!

    I now know
    - Why I massively cocked up with the centrifuge and the TRIzol
    - Maybe why my RNA is coming out so rubbish

    And while this is partly my fault, it is largely not, and makes me feel thoroughly vindicated re: my "yield obsession" as my supervisor has named it.

    To be honest its probably more clues for the funding councils I'm afraid.

    I've become a bit a lab monkey, at least temporarily, not that I particularly like wet chemistry anymore. Got to talk to a load of final year students tonight about how great the energy industry is. Hope none of them ask tough questions about climate change and protests.

    WELCOME? It's the middle of October, where have you been???

    In other news, my RNA yield has improved by a factor of 10. I now feel justified in jumping around the lab screaming "I TOLD YOU PEOPLE SOMETHING WAS WRONG!!!" I am trying quite hard not to blame my postdoc for making me use the wrong centrifuge. EVERYTHING is good right now

    Heh I did think it a little odd that the welcome reception was 2 weeks after we started. Ah well was a good event, but i'm paying for my overindulgence today!

    Yes, but there is at least hope of you remembering it :p: I, however, am slowly introducing myself to the joys of UNIX, PLINK and awk... soon to be followed by IMPUTE, MACH, BEAGLE and MERLIN.
    You sound like someone who is doing GWAS.

    You need a big computer. A very BIG one. Preferably one that no one else can use except you.
