July 20th - My Last Day in Lab!
Today is my last day in lab for the summer. In the beginning of June, I began by ordering a stock of whole chicken blood, and proceeded to purify this stock throughout the summer. For the past few weeks in particular, I had been working on running gels to digest the sample with the correct amount of micrococcal nuclease. This week, I correctly digested both of my samples, so they are now ready to be run in a column to isolate the mononucleosomes. In the fall, I look forward to further purifying my samples until I just have mononucleosomes, and running electrostatic experiments on them!
