I was hired in August to purify fungal enzymes so that they can be tested by a collaborator for potential use in biofuels. I. finally. got. one. It’s pure, the only thing in the sample, and all of my assays argee about what when on in the purification process. I think it might even still be active because my sample shows no degradation! Unfortunately my boss is gone all week and my co-worker didn’t come in so I’m completely alone and have no one to share with 🙁 I’m really excited so at least I can tell the hive. Now that I’ve got one working hopefully the other 3 aren’t far behind.

Ok, so 1. yay! and 2. I bet your company would instantly fire you if they knew you were posting about trade secret successes online. I work in the pharma industry, and this is such a huge no-no!! I assume you are posting from your work computer – you know that IT can track/see that, right?

It’s not very classified, trust me there’s not even close to enough info there to tell you what I’m working on. I work at a University and just about anyone can walk into my lab if they can find it. In fact yesterday I had a mom and a son who were touring the school wander by. Usually they’re trying to find some professor’s office.

I work for a masters program whose students do this work. I have to urge you to ask weddingbee to take this down. Even if you are working for a university or doing research for a professor/principle researcher, you should never EVER discuss your lab work publically. Just last week, one of our students got in trouble for posting something similar on twitter. She was almost banned from her research lab.
