Formal meeting - 11th August 2010

Roll calls

  • Apologies: Neil
  • Absence: Matt, Jem, Colin Harwood and Colin Davie


T-shirts are almost ready. However, everyone needs to send their preferred names to Janetta to be printed onto the T-shirts. The actual printing will take approximately a week.

Judging Criteria

  • We should focus on one of the Gold requirements and if there is any extra time, another requirement can be tackled
  • Possibly look at other teams' wiki pages to identify any area that we may potentially be able to help - perhaps St Andrews' modelling???


Modelling should be the main focus after the lab work - after August.

Lab feedback

  • Gibson cloning - find out whether it's worked tomorrow
  • Subtilin immunity - ongoing, currently doing gel electrophoresis and extraction

Research feedback

All the research feedbacks are done. For now, no need for anymore.


  • Lab book is up to date


  • Deena to travel to London tomorrow (12.08.2010)
