Graduate student at Northwestern University studying bio sciences and BIGG DATAAAAA; still know my electrical engineering though.

  • Learning:
    • Python (+ wxPython, PIL Image, others),
    • PowerShell
    • Java (on Android platform)
  • Know C on embedded well (what's a file? stream? :P)
  • Used to know HTML (sort-of now), CSS (less-so...), JScript (no.) At least I was able to forget most of this stuff just in time for AJAX to become useful. (Because it's totally different from DHTML...)

I like stout, esp. oatmeal stout. Gin and tonic if we're talking mixed drinks. Also like Portal (hell, all Valve games), and would kill a bus full of baby nuns with fire if Gabe would release Half-Life 3 already.

comment Can I image Coomassie and GFP in gels at the same time with a fluorescence scanner?
@leonardo the standard running/gel/loading buffers do not seem to be so aggressive as to destroy (all) the GFP; it may be denatured in the loading dye, but when washed out into the gel buffer it seems to recover. On the other hand, putting the gel into destain or fixing solution is very effective at obliterating the fluorescence.

comment Does cockroach lay eggs in human flesh when they “bite”?
Because hydroxide solutions are not usually for-sale unless you're looking in the plumbing aisle.

I assume you mean peroxide solution (hydrogen peroxide); not hydroxide (e.g. sodium hydroxide, a strong base).

@DanielStandage So on the (fictional) Builders.SE site, "How do I fix my circular saw?" should be closed because it's not about building anything?
