Week 2

Monday 9th July 2007

T in the Park was a great success and they didn’t get too soaked. We found out that Peter will not be able to return from Russia. Now we are a man down and need a replacement – fast. This week Christine will be attempting to overcome the sogginess of her sandwiches last week by replacing lettuce with sweetcorn. So far so good.

Enter superhero Lynsey. A friend of Maia and Scott, she’s very welcome, especially as she was able to help us with our presentations (Team Building Exercise Number 2). The drylab needed to know what we mean by ribosomes and primers (and why they take so long to design), and we needed to know what they expect from us (as well as what on earth MatLab is) – and now we know. It was awesome. Christine’s sandwich was quality.

DmpR petti meidät, hiton lehmä!=##&%>!! Yes, we’re not fans of DmpR anymore. After spending too long designing primers for DmpR it hasn’t even grown properly and now we need to start all over again. We’ll double our bets this time and use DntR and XylR, and…….. design more primers!!!!!

“Get Christine Telephone, Goat Telephone Andrew, Andrew Telephone Christine”. Primers are making us crazy. On top of that, Christine forgot her sandwich. To the pub…

Friday 13th July 2007

Friday the 13th no less. So we ordered the primers (great) only to realise that one of the suffices was wrong. Too late. And we’re dealing with Germany here, and wow! they’re efficient! We didn’t fix it in the 15 minutes they allow after the order has been placed to change it because it took us that long redesign it and to realise we couldn’t call their office because they’re two hours ahead. We won’t be messing that up again.

Maija feels she needs to share this with the team. She woke up in the middle of the fri-sat night to the phone ringing and she thought she was designing primers and the display seemed to be full of Andrews, Goats, Christines and Telephones. Is she taking iGEM too seriously? LOL :D
