Yesterday Mirae graduated with a B.S. in Physics. We are going to miss her around the lab as she heads off to do an internship in France and a Ph.D. at MIT. Congratulations, Mirae!

Alistair will be presenting a talk this afternoon (3/22) at the Systems Biology: Global Regulation of Gene Expression conference at Cold Spring Harbor. He is also co-moderating the session on the 3D Architecture of the Nucleus. If you prefer to get your fill of snow in British Columbia, you can also catch Alistair’s talk at the Keystone Symposium on Chromatin […]
Admissions microscope room tour this afternoon — meet in the DB library at 3:20pm. (thanks for the artwork, TzuChiao!)
A quick shout out to Leslie, who just passed her qualifying exam. Congratulations, Leslie! We celebrated with some wine and cake.
We went back to Foothills park for another lab picnic. It was a beautiful day, much cooler than when we were last there in August. We saw a couple of red-tailed hawks and a pocket gopher.
Last night the lab carved up some jack-o’-lanterns and tried some of Trader Joe’s finest pumpkin-flavored offerings. (photo credit: Leslie)
I am particularly interested at present in how the nanoscale spatial organization of chromatin is regulated during development to affect gene expression. Background I grew up on the Mid-Atlantic Coast of the United States with an abiding love for the outdoors and a fascination with things that live and grow. As a undergraduate I studied Physics and Molecular Biology at Princeton, […]
Scope 2 assembly and alignment have been completed and we’ve added several TBs of memory to the server, so we’re ready for lots of experiments!
We had a nice end-of-summer outing — a picnic and short hike around the Foothills Nature Preserve in Los Altos, followed by ice cream. We’ve really enjoyed having Mirae and Zack with us in the lab this summer and hope they can find some time in their busy schedules to continue to help out in the lab once classes start. […]
