  6. Guys, I can’t even begin to describe the glory that was BoatParty.Biz. It was my first real vacation in over a year, and included a visit to a tropical paradise with gorgeous beaches, endless brass (because boats), stunning lightening storms, my first ever piña colada, and so many new friends. So many new friends!! I had to miss MaxFunCon this year, but the boat party was an incredible replacement. Definitely signing up for the next voyage! -b

    Ugh. The last two weeks of my life. -b

  9. Unless you’re an evolutionary biologist or just really into popular science, it probably won’t mean anything to you when I say that I’m one of the third generation of Lenski Long-term Experimental Evolution off-shoots. REL’s experiment changed my view of biology as a field, and inspired me to pursue research.
I’ve reminisced with my advisor about the day when, as an undergraduate doing volunteer research, I was handed my own block of freezer stocks that included ‘REL606’ and ‘REL607’. Rich is a true leader in the field; he’s blogging now and even recently joined Twitter! -b
PS Our new background image is a photo of an E. coli strain that I constructed, and its direct progenitor.
