ahoy! i'm back in warm hawaii.
before i go back to my regular blabbering, a few more notes from my traipse to the mountains:
^ i love mexican food and i think i could eat at chipotle everyday.
^ besides TWiV, i went to the taping of TWiM! very entertaining and informative, more episodes here: http://www.microbeworld.org/podcasts/this-week-in-microbiology you can also subscribe via itunes- very handy!- if you do the ipod thing. this episode there was discussion on research integrity (falsifying data and retracting papers, oh my!), eye infections (they made contact lens for rats!), legionella (stay away from grocery store produce misters), and CRISPR found in a phage (cholera [bacteria] are smart, but are the phage [virus] getting smarter?!).
^ my poster, all set up! the fruits of my labor, finally in print and on display, makes me so happy. :) i had really great response from other scientists. there is much more work to be done and all the comments and critique will help. i'm very flattered to have been asked "and when are you publishing?" but in truth... i am not sure when and if that will happen. i'm just a community college student...
that's all i got from the ipod, i might have one more conference post with the 5d pictures. hope you don't mind!
