Our next lab meeting will be on Tuesday 4th Aug, 10-11am, in B52. Please email me with any news for the meeting.
There will be talks from Dan Mifsud and Clemens Kupper (titles tba).
“You will have probably heard reports in the media that nationally the number of cases of swine flu is increasing. The confirmed number of cases in this region and in the University is still relatively low.
However, it is important to be vigilant so we’d like to remind all staff of the information and advice on the University’s swine flu web pages which have just been updated: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/swineflu
These pages include general information about the virus and advice on what you should do if you think you have developed swine flu symptoms. There are also useful links to external sources of information such as the NHS, the Health Protection Agency and the new Pandemic Flu helpline.
If you have any concerns please speak to your line manager or contact email@example.com”
Scitable from Nature Publishing Group was created for faculty and students in Biology, Genetics, and other related fields. Scitable, which currently focuses exclusively on the field of genetics, is built on a free library of overviews of key science concepts compiled by the editorial staff of Nature Publishing Group. Scitable’s evidence-based approach explains science through the lens of the scientific method, with frequent links to milestone research papers.

…when using the Starlab 8-tube strips for DNA extraction DO NOT attempt to rotate in the oven. You must incubate horizontally and mix gently (with close supervision to see that there is no leakage). It may be necessary to ‘bleed’ the pressure inside the tubes (but beware of bubbles contaminating other samples).
as mentioned at the last meeting, we’re meeting this Friday (17/07) in B52.
New visitors / staff / students, please bring cakes!
you may remember Merche who visited last year from Univ of Granada who is working on magpies. She will visit the molecular ecology lab from end of July to mid September and will be coming with her partner and baby daughter. They could share a house if necessary but ideally would find a house.
If you can help, please contact Merche: firstname.lastname@example.org
