WOW... what a long day at UCSF today. i felt like i have been there forever. It has been the latest i ever stayed at UCSF so far. I didnt leave the building until 8:30ish. The bus shuttle was almost empty on the ride back, only a few people were in it. At least the sky wasnt dark yet =D
It was nice to have a little bit of extra sleep today. We didn't have to arrive there until 10 o clock. I took the 9 o clock shuttle, and still arrived pretty early. It allowed me to have some extra time to just surf the web. Before you know it, we started the work with an overview and simple explaination of what our goals was. I think for the most part, the process is pretty simple. First, we just started by splitting the dicty cells that we had the other day. They were pretty confluent, so we loosend up the cells, threw them out, and added new media to the plates.
At 11:30, we had a CPL meeting. i actually have no idea what CPL stands for, but i can tell you that they have food everytime theres a meeting! Today's lunch was indian food. To tell you the truth, i actually never a full indian course before. I have had curry here and there, but todays food was ordered straight from a indian resturant. There was also many variety to choose from. Since i never had a lot of the food, i wanted to try a little bit of everything. The food ended up not being that bad.
The rest of the day was just lab work. we prepared storage vectors to place them into desination vectors. There was a lot of waiting for cells to be ready, incubation time, so while that was happening, i had a chance to actually start in my notebook. i'm proud to say its almost caught up too! i should be caught up by tomorrow!
