so…. I have new crystals that look like orzo pasta. 🙂
however…. said crystals are as impossible (as usual with my protein) to reproduce! blerggggg. they also take almost 7 days to appear, which stinks because seven days from right now we will be AT the synchrotron, which leaves me like…. ZERO time.
it is 6pm, and i have many many hours ahead of me in lab, in an effort to squeeze out a few more crystals before our trip. it will be a very long night… at the end of which i will likely be grouchy, hungry, and dreaming about real orzo pasta….
