We interrupt our irregularly scheduled blogging to wish the long-term evolution experiment a very fit 31st birthday!
Here are two pictures of graduate student Kyle Card doing today’s transfers, and thereby starting off the next year of their evolutionary journey.
Today’s entries in the LTEE notebook are shown below.
We also had a visitor who picked up some strains from the freezer over the weekend, and who left us a note on the lab’s whiteboard.
We ate a Galapagos-themed cake, shown below, a couple of weekends ago when we celebrated the February birthdays of Charles Darwin, Abe Lincoln, and the LTEE.
Thank you Kyle, and thanks to everyone who has ever performed transfers and/or done research on the LTEE lines.
Last but not least, here’s a lovely post by Roberto Kolter at Small Things Considered wishing the LTEE a happy birthday!
