With a new cohort of recruits comes a new phage boot camp - most of a week learning the basics of phage visualizing, handling, storage, preservation, etc. This time, we were also joined by students from the Burrows, Surette and Hosseini-Doust labs. Everyone in this picture was told to look busy.
`tis the season, apparently, for recognizing the achievments of team members. Last week Jason Tran (Right) was awarded a Deborah M. Brown scholarship for academic excellence entering the BDC program. At 5000$, that should buy a lot of yoghurt...
Topping off an exciting week in the lab, I've just been informed that Félix has been awarded an OGS scholarship for his PhD starting here in May. Congratulations Félix! He's not even in the province yet, and already making his presence felt in Ontario.
Clara returns from a trip to the capital, to present at SciNapse 2018 (UofO). That is a mighty fine looking poster (or, as Clara puts it "in person, the green wasn't as ugly as I thought it would be!")
Welcome to the Hynes Lab website; Farncombe Phage. The site is meant to help you get to know our work and our team, and highlight some of the accomplishments of the lab and its trainees.
The lab opened its doors. Hiba, Clara, Anisha and Jason joined me for an intensive phage "boot-camp", getting familiar with phage manipulation techniques. We performed the experiments in this paper - a great way to get to know phages, as well as several other basic techniques.
