My working life…

Ah, working till christmas. On things I can’t tell other people about in any detail.

Anyway, I’m doing an infection trial with mutant arabidopsis lines to test the effect of three genes on resistance to a bacterial wilt pathogen. Nothing special, but seeing tray upon tray of little plants growing merrily in the light room is sort of calming. It makes me feel a bit sad knowing that the little girl-guys are in for a horrible shock in a weeks time. Which is when the ‘infection’ part of the trial kicks in. Poor things.

By the way: happy holidays, everyone! I hope they’re restful.
