It's been a while since my first post, and I'm happy to say lots of stuff has been happening since last time!
- 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.
- We'll be doing workshops! We'll do one in early September and then likely a few more later on. Stay tuned!
- 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!
