Do you have an old and/or broken mobile phone that you want to give away for charity. I’m currently collecting these for my sons school. Let me know tomorrow or by thursday at the latest if you are interested.
I am doing a 12k adventure race on 10th of October. Throughout the race there are extra challenges to help try and tire me out. These include an army obstacle course and a swim half way through.
More info on the event can be found at
Please help my motivation and determination to do this by sponsoring me. The money is going to cancer research UK.
Subject to availability the courses are open to all researchers. Optionally, graduate researchers may register for courses through the Research Training Programme and gain credits for their research degrees.
Please forward this e-mail to new researchers in your department who may find this training useful.
For further information please e-mail

We are currently advertising for a lecturer in evolutionary biology (a permanent position) here in the Biology Department at York.If you know of any potentially suitable candidates, please draw this opportunity to their attention, or let me have their details and I will be happy to contact them.
The closing date is 8 October, and details can be found at
Hi folks- just a note about DNA sequencing- if possible use one ‘real control’ (i.e. samples that you know have already worked for a particular primer as well as a standard pGEM). You could ask a colleaugue also for a sample if you do not have one?
The working or otherwise of this sample will give more info. to guide you to the source of any problem (see my email regarding failing reverse sequences).
“Genomics for beginners- initial basic knowledge transfer meeting”
Tuesday 6th October 1.30-3.30 in B52
This will be held by our very own Drs. Robert Ekblom, Philline Feulner, Juan Galindo and Anna Santure.
It will be aimed at pretty much beginnners- the idea being to transfer some of their knowledge of the theory, new techniques etc. ecompassed under the ‘Genomics’ heading. It is hoped that this session will highlight other specific knowledge-transfer needs (perhaps another more detailed session or hands-on bioinformatics session for example)
Can you let me know if you are going to attend.
If you would like a particular subject addressing could you also let me know and I will pass it on.
