Telomere connection

8 10 2014

Found the mystery telomere researcher: Niel Karrow, always good to talk to so if his new protocol works this could be a fun collaboration.

I ended up emailing the whole department actually, and it turns out there are several people to whom Southern blots, PCRs, and whatever it is you have to do to do a ‘comet assay‘, are all laughably easy. Woo hoo! And if by chance none of these local leads work out, then MSc. student Mara Thomas read my blog and told me of her fascinating stress lab in Germany (details to be filled in when I re-find her helpful note)… so things are looking good for me and Mike.
