I’ve not been able to do much work in the lab lately. Mostly because I’m a Master of Procrastination(TM). But also because I’ve been working on finishing the practical part of a course I’m taking this semester, chromatography. We’re having three lab exercises, using three separation techniques. Ion exchange column, GC (with FID) and HPLC. Instead of the tidious work of writing lab journals, posters are to be presented in plenum. This course is very relevant to my thesis, as I will be using eluation techniques for purifying my precious chitin binding proteins.
