I am super busy this quarter. Along with my continuing research into increasing the length of DNA nanotubes, I am taking four biology classes and doing some volunteer work with a local medical organization. As far as my research is going I have an awesome internship with RISE and will presenting some of my data at the SCCUR conference in November. I am super excited for the latter. I have a couple of successful ways of increasing the average length of the nanotubes but nothing that gets me to the 100 micron range that I want. Currently, I am working on a temperature cycling method (slightly hard to explain) and a neat way to increase the frequency of end-to-end joining. Like all research things are moving slowly but I will eventually get there. Hopefully.
