Hi all, I forgot about the lab book email, because it reached me in New Orleans… My day:
1 Collected virgins for our ill post-doc
2 Prepared colored food (10mg/ml, 2.5ml total in the very little vials, ~ 7 flies in each vial). Vicky tested in the afternoon females in the Buridan. The the duration of drug application was increased to 3h because there was no effect after 1 hour. Data will be shown in the lab meeting.
3 Answered to Dennis Pauls to make an appointment for the Trehalose measurement in Würzburg
4 Glued hooks for a flight experiment I did not do because I did not know, how… (idea was to test whether the UAS-tbh cross is ok)
5 Checked my TDCxGCaMP flies for expression in the fluorescence dissection scope (very cool!) in Marco’s room (borrowed from Konstantin). Then realized that there are pupa in the virgin vials :(
6 Temperature-dependent experiments in Buridan: wanted to test the infrared lamp with the dimmer (measure the temperature change). Was impossible because the thermometer itself heated up. So, I finally looked for an infrared thermometer (you can point on the area you want to measure).
7 boring stuff… Dienstreiseabrechnung was wrong… Email to the Chinese guys again about the cylinder for Buridan… Explained Florian (Marco’s master student) some fly stuff…
