As some of you know, there were several pieces of glass (test tubes, glass rods) during the lab Monday and Tuesday. As a result, we were reminded of the SAFETY issues in lab.
Since we're finally getting into (almost) nice weather, I need to remind you that you need to be wearing closed toed shoes on lab days. This will be many days for the rest of the year - we will be working with gel electrophoresis the next 2 weeks and then frogs from (probably) May 18th on. This also means goggles and handwashing and being diligent in the lab.
