So over the past couple of days, our FPOP has done some pretty cool stuff.
– we heard a talk from a postdoc, Lyle Simmons, on DNA repair. Lyle will also be teaching 7.341, Not Just a Bag of Enzymes: DNA Dynamics in the Tiny Bacterial Cell, in the Fall.
– we toured the Broad Institute where they sequenced part of the human genome.

Orientation is by far one of the most exciting times of the year. There’s just a lot of things going on that are pretty exciting, and for all of you ’09s reading this, I encourage you to participate in all of it as Jessie and Mollie have both also said. I can say this from experience. It’s a lot of fun; don’t miss out.
