By | 0 Comments

Nuit Blanche was four weeks ago, but I’m reliving the days of having photos developed and printed by waiting so long to show the pictures.

A series of pretty pictures on the Telegraph website: Artist Luke Jerram’s viral sculptures. Here’s SARS, looking very shiny: There’s more info on the artist’s website. Jerram is colour blind, but for something like this that doesn’t make any difference. Viruses don’t have a particular “colour”. We know what they look like from electron microscopy, and that just shows the…

By | 2 Comments

Lots of good stuff has been appearing in the easternblot Flickr pool lately, while I was neglecting my poor blog, but this picture by optimal tweezers was my favourite: o/ That is exactly what it feels like when an experiment works. I haven’t had that feeling too often in the lab, but it’s really a mood changer. So are failed…
