Kevin is officially a doctor! And he was able to pin the phospho on the Pol II CTD.
Erin is heading to Stanford to pursue a masters in education. We wish her all the best and will miss her! We're also excited to welcome Robert into the lab. Robert brings a wide range of computational biology skills to the lab.
Our first bioinformatics student! Congrats to Kate for finding a lab to join! We're excited you're in our group!
We had another fun retreat this year on Mt. Desert Island, ME. Aside from eating lobster and going on hikes, everyone gave 10 minute chalk talks on their projects highlighting the major barriers of their project's field and what magical measurement would surmount those barriers. We got pretty magical at times, but other times, ideas were deemed not so magical and perhaps possible in the near future. So in all, the talks were a great way to brainstorm.
Also new this year, we had walk up songs for everyone's chalk talk. Here's the songs as a Spotify playlist.
