Hello, world! Meet Sylvanas, our lab Beta. She is apparently named after a bada$$ in World of Warcraft. Seems like a fitting name. Don't mess with this fish! :)
We had a great time with the Reinke and Ensminger labs! We did some Powerpoint Karaoke, played some Quiplash (hence why everyone has their noses buried in their phones...right....), ate some pizza (no BBQ for us!), and some ice cream from Julie's family's ice cream stand. All in all, it was a fun day!
Great work, Julia and Amanda!!
Monica at bat, ready to hit it out of the park ;)
Chris had his thesis defense on Friday, April 13th, 2018, but there was nothing unlucky about it! Great job! Congrats, Dr. Wedeles!
Check out this amazing cake Amanda made for Monica's defense, complete with a worm life cycle, DAPI stained germline, and model for Argonaute function! (photobomb: wt and mutant embryo cookies, and of course, gummi worms)
Monica defended her thesis on April 3, 2018 and did a fantastic job! Congrats, Dr. Wu!
