Students in the lab
Students in my research lab get experience with molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, X-ray crystallographic analysis of protein structures, and steady-state enzyme kinetics. Each year we make a few trips to the synchrotron at Argonne National Labs near Chicago to collect X-ray diffraction data. Take a look at the photos below to see just how much fun they have!
