Personal Info

I am a graduate student who works in the labs of Chris Brigham and Vanni Bucci at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The primary purpose of this page is to be a central location for finding protocols/reagents/media I've developed or those which I've used, but with tweaks to accommodate reagents we have in our labs. I also like to try understand the physical nature behind the dogma in molecular biology/microbiology/genetic engineering protocols and test things which are often given as true. There are always caveats when performing experiments in biology, and so I'd like to try to log some of those caveats here. I'll be sure to reference all those documents which provided initial inspiration or guidance for me. When I started grad school, I had zero practical wet lab experience, and (I think) I've become a pretty savvy worker. I hope you might find some of my advice helps you through some of your experimental headaches.
