Monochrome Dress with a Red Lip

Primark Lipstick red super matte liquid lipstick monochrome dress

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! I feel like all of my weeks are just blurring by as it's a similar routine every week and before I know it, it's the weekend again! Two of my best friends came round to visit this weekend and we had a lovely little catch up! Then during labs this past week I did a transfection. I basically have a gene of interest which I inserted into circular DNA (plasmid) and I put it into bacterial cells so they'd grow up loads up my DNA for me, I then extracted this DNA and mutated a few different base pairs. On Thursday I tried to insert this "bacterial" DNA into human cells and hopefully they took it up into their cells and expressed my gene of interest. So on Monday I am going to find out whether it actually worked or not and if there are any interesting results, so fingers crossed!

Embroidery Dresses

H&M Embroidery Dress Bodycon

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! Labs are pretty much back in full swing so the long grueling days of DNA extractions have started again. I have to extract DNA from 350 samples and I'm currently on 230 I'm nearly there :') It's a bit of a pain as I can only really do 12 samples in a day and it takes forever!I should be done in the next few weeks though and then it's on to the next step :)
