A typical day at work would be organizing lab materials, cleaning up equipment that has been left out, repairing microscopes, running DNA extractions, PCR, and gel electrophoresis. There are some days were plasmids are incubated in agar or fluorescence microscopy is used to visualize fly phenotypes.
I learned a lot of valuable lab experience and proper aseptic technique in the lab. As well as what to do in case something went wrong.
The management was my academic advisor and was really nice and helpful and my coworkers were fellow graduate or undergraduate students. Majority had their own projects or were an extension of the PI's project. We would come together for weekly meetings to discuss what we have worked on, ask questions, and contribute ideas for each others projects.
Most enjoyable part of the job was everyone was there to help each other when help was needed.
Had to graduate and leave
