Tomorrow (Thursday) I will be doing a UCAS demonstration in the Mol Ecol Lab, lasting for about 1 hour. This will be at the central entrance to the lab and I will need access to the sequencer room at this time.
It will get really busy (there are a lot of people coming tomorrow), so can I please please ask that you collect the plates/tips/septa/pipettes you need BEFORE 2pm tomorrow, and please try not to put plates on between 2 and 3pm. It’s a bit stressful giving the presentation and especially so when lab members are charging through large groups of students and parents… also people with benches around the sequencer, if you need somewhere quiet to work, you can use my lab bench (next to the PCR machines).
I’m going for drinks at the Fat Cat (www.thefatcat.co.uk) after work tomorrow, for my birthday. Leaving work about 5.30 to walk down there for 6ish – they serve pub food 6-8pm and loads of local beers, would be great if you could join me.Your help is also requested to eat cake, at coffee – 10.30 in the locker room!
We have booked the Christmas dinner at the Fulwood Inn this year (30 seats reserved). There’s an offer of two 3-course-meals for £25!
I have put the menu on the white board next to the main entrance in the lab, so please put your name and dinner choice on the list by TUESDAY 8/12 5pm next week; they also require a £5 deposit, so please COME AND FIND ME also by TUESDAY 8/12 5pm in B71 office. This way, Terry can bring over the booking and deposits on his way home.
Gareth Elvidge from Illumina will be here training a small no. of us up on the BeadExpress SNP genotyping system. If you would like to attend the powerpoint presentations that he will be giving please just turn up to the following (I would encourage you all to attend if possible).
