Game of Clones

A friend pointed this out today and thought it was worth sharing as it combines biology with Game of Thrones in a somewhat weird Biotech promotion.

I guess it's not a bad idea given that researchers probably have a higher proportion of Game of Thrones book/TV fans than the general populace.
It's not just for the pun and the above banner though. They go into far more detail. Each tool from their catalogue is placed within a "house" which comes with its own coat of arms and even a motto. If you can't be bothered with the link here is an example:

I think Renly would be inclined to take up the offer in house peptide ;)

The person responsible deserves a pat on the back for such an effort! Any american researchers should try and buy something if they can.

Science Songs

Inspired by this morning's wasted journey into the lab. Looking at the lyrics closely I can't help but wonder if Trent Reznor worked in research at some stage.

"it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
but it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
it didn't turn out quite the way that you wanted it

now you know
this is what it feels like"
