And so it begins...

All of the planning for our laboratory automation platform is finally coming to fruition.  On Monday, the south side of our lab bay will be filled with the table frames that will house the robotic platform we have designed over the past year to automate nearly every process in our laboratory, including cloning, site-directed mutagenesis, bacterial transformation/expression/purification, and biophysical assays.  We're tremendously excited to finally put this plan into action!
