Everything is getting ready for the weekly lab meeting in one of the conference rooms at the Valley Life Sciences Building (VLSB). Most of the lab members attend the meetings with old fashion pen-and-paper in order to take notes of the latest research details, as well as for making drawings of somewhat not that really different from abstract and modern art. However, you can also see a small minority of the members with more modern electronic devices that makes transcription tasks more efficient.
It is very important to have a good assortment of pastries (donuts, muffins, scones, etc) and it is strongly recommended to have a good mug full of coffee so you don’t fall asleep in the middle of a presentation with the latest results about human evolution, population genetics and statistical genomics. Until now, the kitchen in the room remains ignored but don’t discard the possibility that in some near future it can be used for some lab meeting with breakfast or brunch included.
