The confocal microscopy wasnt’ the blast I was hoping for. Not because 3D visualization using laser and fluourescence isn’t fun and impressive. But, mostly me having high hopes: Looking at living mammal cells. Manipulated proteins with different stains, interacting, colourful images… Oh well. Instead, we watched a dull image of some cells involved in the breaking loose of the leaves of the flower Poinsettia. There are times I really dislike studying at an agricultural university, one of them being now. :)
