Week 7: Wednesday
I read several articles while making sure Steve did not harm himself in the machine shop. The first article I read will be discussed on Friday during the lab's journal club and was about the effects of different salts on DNA elasticity using magnetic tweezers. If you have been reading this blog, it is obvious that this article includes aspects of both our projects. Funnily enough, Prof. Andresen contributed to two of the articles in the reference section of this article. The other articles I read further explained the compaction of DNA and the protocol we can utilize in my project using the ICP-OES. I also reviewed all of my notes thus far to condense the method I've used this summer.
