lab cleanup- 23rd Oct 11-11.30ish

Hi folks- we are having a lab cleanup on Thursday 23rd Oct (i.e. tomorrow- or today depending on when you read this!). Sorry for the short notice. In case you are confused *everyone* reading this is expected to attend as users or potential users of the lab and give at least 30 minutes helping to clean up etc. (full training and bubbles will be provided although sadly the lemon scented stuff from last time has run out).

If you have planned something else and can’t change it can you ensure that you do your bit before or after.


APS328 Molecular Ecology course – lab tour

The annual Level 3 Molecular Ecology course lab tour will take place 11-12 on Wednesday 5 November. It would be great to have some volunteers to talk about their projects (to save me from press-ganging people). The format would be a 10 minute session or so from 4 or 5 people, given 2 or 3 times depending on how many students turn up.

Please let me know asap if you are willing to do this, with a brief title.

Lightwood full- please act now

Lightwood is almost full.It is important that you have a look into it *now if possible* and delete any files that you don’t need (particularly large items such as private pictures, 3730 raw data runs that you may have duplicated anyway etc.).

The is quite critical as we have just been told that there is only 4% space left and stuff is being automatically purged.
