After submitting three grants within the past month, it's time to do some actual science!  It'll certainly be nice to mix in some bench work to go with more writing and computational stuff.

Also, a big welcome to Reda Silarbi, the first trainee in the group!  Reda is an enthusiastic third yeast student in Biomedical Science who will be learning yeast microbiology, yeast genetics, DNA molecular biology, etc.  In other words, all the fun stuff that happens at the bench.

One other note:  A paper from my postdoctoral lab just came out, which I contributed to in a minor fashion, about endogenous and exogenous sources of mutagenesis in human fibroblasts:
