So I held an actual Nobel prize medal on Monday. Like a real legit one. Reckon I can get away with ‘held a Nobel prize’ on the CV? 🤣
Thank you to Professor Marshall for sharing his inspiring prize-winning science with me, driving me round the Australian bush Roo-spotting and trusting me to touch this beaut🥇
Have you ever been scared to touch something because it is so precious? I thought a confocal microscope or a baby was bad enough until I was handed this 😂 ...
Did you know?
Plastic debris can absorb toxic chemicals from ocean pollution, therefore poisoning whatever eats it.
Plastic does not degrade; instead, it breaks down into progressively smaller pieces, but never disappears. They then attract more debris.
It poses a significant health threat to the various sea creatures, and to the entire marine ecosystem.
Overall, plastic is the number one source of pollution in the ocean.

Accurately quantifying total protein concentration is a key step in most experiments
Protein Assay (Bradford assay), is a simple procedure used to determine the concentration of solubilised proteins. It involves the addition of an acidic dye to protein solution, and subsequent measurement using a spectrophotometer or microplate reader. Comparison to a standard curve provides a relative measurement of protein concentration.
Here👆🏻 I’m quantifying my proteins before I run a western blot. What do you quantify your proteins for? ...
