Preferred "Extra" OH Time

We will take a doodle poll to set regular office hours based upon T/R or W/F section. However, we do offer supplemental office hours before big assignments are due.

What times on Sundays (all), Mondays (T/R section), and Tuesdays (W/F section) are you available for occasional office hours? We have held office hours in the evening in the past, but day time slots are best.

Sundays I am free almost at any time. Tuesdays I have lecture from 11-2:30 and tennis practice ranging from 4-7.

Potentially Relevant Background

Have you taken/are you taking... Answer yes/no/when
7.05/5.07 (Biochemistry) spring '15
7.06 (Cell Biology) no
7.03 (Genetics) yes, fall '14
5.310 (General Chemistry Lab) no
BioSafety Training yes

Do you have experience with... Answer yes/no/type
Cell culture (microbial/mammalian/yeast?) yes, bacterial culture
Molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc) yes, electrophoresis, PCR, transformations

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

I worked in the Niles lab last spring and summer with a graduate student who was studying Plasmodium falciparum, the malaria parasite. I built a recombinant DNA tool to help elucidate the function of a putative splicing factor.

Anything else you would like us to know related to 20.109?

For example, please let us know if you have any special glove requests, namely XS or XL size, or nitrile material -- we carry latex S/M/L by default.


What is your favorite food or song or song about food?

I like all kinds of cheese. My favorite song changes too frequently so I don't really know what it is right now. And unfortunately, I don't know any good songs about food, although I am open to recommendations.
