Gels can Smile?

Bioscience Technology at Portland Community College is getting slippery! As our class forges ahead in the fun filled world of Bioseparations we tackled chromatography and protein gels (protein electrophoresis) this week! We learned how to piece together a gel set-up which is like negotiating a particularly tricky set of Legos. We also made our own resolving and stacking gels! Gels are fun!

Sweet Stuff for Science Buffs

Not unlike many students whom are perpetually task saturated throughout the term, I tend to catch up on my social media as soon as we break. In addition to my love for Bio-Link.org, I have quite a bit additional science nerdiness representing on my personal facebook and Google+ feeds.  So this week, I thought I would share some of those pages as well as some of my favorite Chrome apps and maybe (hopefully) find out what some of your favorites are too.
