Did more infections in the Galleria yesterday for a collaboration. Sometimes you’ll gain skills in your Ph. D that will help someone else’s work, so you end up spending a lot of time teaching other people or doing experiments for other people because you have an expertise in something specific. Nice continuity of knowledge… or just an excuse for someone to stab some things. 😅
Also have a bit of a conundrum!
Trying to come up with a name for a protein I’m working on characterising. It’s absolutely essential for intracellular replication in my bug… thus far (from my supervisor) we have:
Required for intracellular replication A (RirA)
Essential for… (EirA)
Necessary for… (NirA)
I have so far come up with:
Essential intercellular replication protein A (EirpA)
Because it sounds like a burp. Or a fart.
If anyone else has some brilliant ones (funny, cool, witty, informative, etc)- hit me up!
