  1. Love it man! Where did you get your flow hood? How did you take the micrographs? You used a stain I presume (the russian looking stuff?) I am in the same situation as you, postdoc close to Washington DC, and doing a lot of wild yeast isolations and yeast characterizations, and also thinking of the career moves you described. Hope it works out for you!

    • Hey! It’s not a flow hood unfortunately. I simply modified a bookshelf and used plexiglass as a screen and alcohol lamps for hot air “hood”. Micrographs are taken my sticking a USB microscope camera in one of the eyepieces. I have a number of stains, and the russian looking stuff is brilliant green that I used for some media preps. I’m still a PhD student though (actually haven’t committed to a lab yet) and still have some time to go until post doc 🙂 Maybe you confused me with Jason a little bit? Hehe.

  2. Yup, I did..my bad. Still I think it looks pretty cool what you did. Take it to the next level I would say, I regret not starting with the wild-yeast stuff sooner.

  3. I am….very jealous. lol Not going to lie. It is a dream of mine to have my own lab when I have my own home. How did you manage to accomplish this since I have no idea where I would start 😛 Also, adorable lab assistants lol
