Breathe in, breathe out

Today:

Went to an exciting and awesome departmental seminar on "Food webs and invasion dynamics in the Drosophila gut microbiome" by someone in the Molecular and Cellular Biology Department here. Apparently there are 5 main bacterial species that live in fruit fly guts, and they're aerobic and culturable, so they're a phenomenal microcosm for studying a wide range of questions.

Then I decided to get all-of-a-sudden nervous about my practice talk for the conference next week. That said, the lab has given me some great constructive feedback to work with, so my talk will be a lot better than the practice talk was. That's the purpose of practice talks, right?

I am looking forward to having some snippets of quiet time while I travel. I have a lot of work to work on during those snippets. I'm going to bring along my giant headphones.

Time to get lab stuff wrapped up.

I do wonder how many nonculturable bacteria we contain, and how much effect they have on us.
