We're doing some revisions on our failed-again CIHR proposal about DNA uptake, and will pass it on to two internal reviewers on Monday. They're both microbiologists and we hope their comments will help us fine-tune it for the Microbiology and Infectious Diseases review committee.
The RA is about to do some preliminary cross-linking experiments that we hope to add to the proposal.
The post-doc and I are making good progress on the first of his two papers (both of which we plan to submit before the March 1 CIHR deadline). He's going to present a fairly complete version of it at today's lab meeting.
I need to spend part of today working on a draft of the Response to Reviewers (when I'm not devising beautiful teaching slides to illustrate how elegantly meiosis solves the problems of correctly segregating homologous chromosomes).
