gr8 work technoplas on your new tube design, with the volume marking lines being actual physical inward-facing ridges inside the tube.
Because nothingmakes a researcher’s day like seeing some of their precious fucking sample caught on ridges on the inside of the tube, not in the pellet down the bottom, to be discarded with the rest of the supernatant. Nothing.

Is no one worried that beekeepers, who I understand need not be biosafety level two certified are apparently using microRNA based techniques on their bees? And yet if I were to try and make pet glow-in-the-dark rabbits, the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator would be all over my arse.

Australia’s First Cosplay Magazine ‘Thrill’ Hits Supanova!

thrillof:

HEYA THRILLSEEKERS!

As you guys will know if you follow our Facebook page we went to Supanova Melbourne last weekend and had an awesome time! We sold all 25 of the copies we took along with us, so it was a great time for the Thrill team and for all the attendees. We even signed a bunch of copies!

So What Does This Mean For Australia’s First Cosplay Magazine?

Well, we did a roaring trade at Supanova this year, but things are far from over for Australia’s first cosplay magazine. Thrill are already looking for articles, pictures and column ideas for our next issue, which will be released mid to late July with lots of great new information and tips for you. As Australia’s first cosplay magazine, we here at Thrill feel we have a duty to keep you up to date with all the best cosplay news from around the world, but especially what’s going on here in Oz.

For those of you who haven’t yet picked up your copy of http://au.blurb.com/b/5180283-thrill-edition-1, what are you waiting for? If it’s for a great deal, you’re in luck, as here at Thrill we’re offering you 15% off until the end of April! Just go here to Blurb and use the code ‘APRIL15%’ to get a great deal on our first ever copy. It’s sure to be a collector’s item sometime in the future (that’s what we’re hoping at least)!

Finally, we’d like to thank everyone who has so far made Thrill what it is. It’s not easy being Australia’s first cosplay magazine, but you guys have made it feel like great fun. Thank you to everyone who put in their time writing for the magazine, or who sent in pictures for our selfie collection on the Facebook page, and we promise you, we’ll have many more fun things to come!

For more info on the latest issue of Thrill, and how you can submit written work or pictures for the next edition, visit http://thrillof.tumblr.com/.

And don’t forget to check out our Facebook page too at https://www.facebook.com/thrillthecosplaymag

If you’ve picked up an issue of Thrill, why not send us a pic of you in cosplay with it? We’d love to see what you can come up with! Here’s a photo of creator Anita G in her Harley costume!

OMFG BEST MISTAKE EVER

How hard is it to get a PhD . I currently plan on getting my undergrad in biochemistry/molecular bio and immunology/microbiology. I know I got a good ways to go yet, but it be nice to know how I can prepare. Also do you know how to work part time in a research lab in your undergrad

That depends what you want the PhD for. Do you just want the title ‘doctor’? Then you can get that relatively easily at some smaller institutions with work that’s not particularly exciting. Do you want a successful career as a research scientist with the goal of a lab head in mind? Then you’ll have to work pretty damn hard, coming into the lab whenever your project demands it, keeping up to date on the literature and reading as much as possible to try and eke out all the clues to what may be happening in your question of interest, doing your best to, at time, immerse yourself entirely in your research question. Not to sound melodramatic. But during my candidature it’s become pretty clear that to be most successful I will need to discover something novel during my project and get it published before I’m done if my dream of doing a postdoc overseas in one of the great immunology labs is to be realised. If you want to make a great PhD there will be stressful nights where you wish you never had anything to do with science, and amazing, clarifying discoveries that make the rest of it seem worth it. It’s not about hardness, but how much of yourself you’re willing to put into your project, and how well you persevere. I’ll see how I do - to date I think I’ve put too much of myself into approaching rather mundane aspects of my project, but as my understanding has changed, so to have my priorities.

As for work in a lab in undergrad, that’s an excellent way to get started and ensure there will be lab heads who know you should you decide to do an honours/masters/doctorate.You can talk to your course coordinator(s) about possible undergraduate subjects with a research component, or better yet try and get a part time position over the holidays. Even if you do it for free - say you would like to do a few hours a day to ‘get some experience’, the extra leg up you get by developing some familiarity with the labs near you, vetting potential supervisors/professors and just plain old research experience is invaluable, and I very much regret not doing so myself.
I hope this answered your questions. If not, please ask away :)

This is definitely a BAD IDEA. Chemistry-grade ethanol is processed with methanol, which is impossible to fully separate from ethanol and TERRIBLY TOXIC to humans.
Not only that, but do you really know where those beakers have been? Do you know what could be trapped in those silica pores?
You want to get drunk like a chemist, get drunk responsibly. Go buy some Everclear and fresh beakers from Aldrich. At least then you won’t die from methanol or lead poisoning.

Good to know. I actually was unaware of that.

Yeah. As a rule, do not consume lab reagents. Ever. Even if an image on tumlr suggests in jest that it’s a widespread occurrence. Just don’t.

I mean, you could also have just looked at the side of the bottle to see that it’s allowed to contain certain impurities that you might not like drinking. I usually avoid anything that can contain up to 0.2% water. Bleghh


I checked the impurities. Seems legit.
