It's been a while since my first post, and I'm happy to say lots of stuff has been happening since last time!

  1. We have worms! We got our first batch of wild type C. elegans and are propagating that on a few plates of E. coli OP50. Next, we'll need some reagents to make some more plates and freeze a few of these for long-term storage.
  2. We'll be doing workshops! We'll do one in early September and then likely a few more later on. Stay tuned!
  3. Lab space! We're aiming to join forces with a few other maker groups in Montreal and rent a big, epic space together starting in September. We are currently gathering equipment and looking for our founding members.

If you're interested in helping out, as a volunteer or organizer, please let us know! We need all the help we can get!

Bye for now!
