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.

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. […]
Our first lab outing was a hike to Berry Creek Falls from the ocean side of Big Basin State Park. We walked 14 miles in near-perfect weather and enjoyed homemade ice cream sandwiches on the trail. On the way home we stopped in Pescadero for some artichoke bread and a look at some small (and very energetic) goats.
For the spring quarter, Nasa Sinnott-Armstrong (Genetics) and Leslie Mateo (Dev. Bio.) will be rotating in the Boettiger Lab.
