Things keep moving forward
Hello Polar Scientists!
Just thought I would give you an update of our progress in the lab.
Some great work was done this year by Peter, Jesse and Sophia. There were ALOT of technical hurdles in this project and getting reliable results is critical for scientists. So far, Peter has done all his imaging and now it is a matter of counting satellite cell numbers in the pup, juvenile and adult samples. His results are very close to completion. Sophia and Jesse are also very close to completion. They both have completed all their staining procedures and now must quantify their samples.
In other news, we have 2 new students in the lab to help continue this project and begin analyzing samples that were collected this past season (2006).
Exciting times in the Hawke Lab!
