Setting up a molecular biology lab is never easy. Luckily, there’s no scarcity of help from colleagues and staff members working in other labs. Things are even smoother when there is a stock room down the street. This morning I bought a few basic items from the Biochemistry stock room, mainly to ‘test the system’ and check out what’s stocked and available right away. Yes, there is no actual reagent yet except agarose, hidden somewhere in the pic; hey, Rome hasn’t been built in a day, has it?!
