Today was a mellow day for the Kiwi. The foreign factor were split for the first time today, Fash headed to the farm to harvest chicken blood and the used the centrifuge to isolate the red blood cells. I was left to tend the column that has been 3 days in the making now. The buffer solution is moving through the column so slowly that the lowest setting on the feeder pump still results in a 1cm per hour increase in the column. The day was made faster by reading papers on chromatin structure.
