We received our first order of the lab’s study species, Xenopus laevis!
Travis Lantz from Chemical and Systems Biology is starting a 2-month stint in our lab as a visiting student. He will be working with Linda to purify fluorescent proteins for some proof-of-principle experiments. In the meantime they are battling the cloning gremlins. Hang in there Travis!
Luke Lynch from the Biochemistry PhD program will be spending the next 10 weeks studying how the replicative CMG helicase is regulated during replication stress – and we couldn’t be more excited!

The artwork was originally intended as a cover proposal to accompany Gheorghe’s postdoc paper “The CMG Helicase Bypasses DNA-Protein Cross-Links to […]
