I work in the department of Emerging Infectious Diseases, Institute of Tropical Medicine at Nagasaki University. I learned about OpenWetWare from Funny story:I had been stuck on using PCR to join two pieces of cDNA together to get the whole cds of a gene which I can then ligate with a vector and transform for over 2 months. Anyway, I did an entrance exam for PhD program and OpenWetWare was mentioned in a comprehension passage. After the exam, I looked it up and found a protocol for assembly PCR which worked. So here I am, signing up to join. Good luck with finding a category for this story., and I've joined because I want better access to protocols that I might find useful in my research and, in return, I will help with editing existing protocols or put up new ones based on my experience..
