As Lent term comes to a close, the members of the computational subteam of the Bioproject have been wrapping up the coding of the model edge detector system. After some struggles with constants and boundary conditions, we finally succeeded in
We rounded off the Michaelmas term with our first practical session at the newly opened Biomakespace! Our aim for the day was to test out the facilities at Biomakespace by running a PCR followed by performing DNA electrophoresis – both
Molecular Biology at Makespace! Today was our first piece of practical molecular biology for the CUSBS Bioproject 2017-18! We met at the Makespace, Mill Lane, as part of the Open Technology Week Science Make-a-thon. Our goal was to test our
