Just My Type - Feb2011


This page started off as a whiny rant, a pity party, if you will. There's a certain aspect of a project I'm working on that keeps failing and I'm beyond frustrated. I'm trying to cut a piece of DNA from one place and paste it somewhere else. Normally, this process is very cook-book, but every now and then it fails. Even less infrequently, the failure is epic. Lucky me, I have an epic failure. Sigh. So, I started this page with intent to just let loose and vent, but instead I ended up making a completely different kind of page, a kind of ode to DNA. I think I just needed to get away from the bench for a while and do something fun! Thanks for the wonderful challenge, Mel!


The journaling on this page is a sort of a brief description of how DNA encodes information, and that even with a limited "alphabet" it can still lead to unique individuals. I chose the colors I did for the letters because we use those colors in the lab when we're trying to read the sequence of the letters in DNA.


Okay, once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...this time I know it will work! Smile
