Sorry for I didn’t update my blog recently for I was quite busy in my work. I just finished my viva and the long run of my master study, and feel released now. I really enjoy my master study this year, for I have learnt a lot and also experienced a colorful time with my supervisors and colleagues.
I appreciate the valuable opportunity rendered by the BMR course organizers, and I have to say this course is definitely a good start for those who are intended to go for PhD. We have extensive choices to get different trainings in different realms. In my first project, I chose a project with Dr Paul Kemp and the project is about microRNA and epigenetic modification. I learnt a variety of techniques including DNA/RNA extraction, RT-qPCR, mini preps, DNA methylation assay, etc. I am grateful for all the supervision from Dr Paul Kemp, and also the help and support from Amy and Jen etc. In my second project, I am very lucky to join Michael Ferenczi’s lab and supervised by Mike and Valentina. In this group, I learnt fluorescence microscopy and life time imaging microscopy from Valentina, and also more importantly, Mike gave me very precious advice for my futher study.
I am satisfied with my work in this year, since I have learnt much and also got a good mark. Good course and enjoyable time! Now I feel so excited to go for my PhD.
