Thurs. Oct 15: Cell Physiology. Alternated between really easy (If a cell was the size of this classroom, how large would the proteasome be? a) desk b) computer c) a car d) single serve milk from the coffee bar e) speck of dust) to really hard - I still am boggled by the Nernst equation.
Fri. Oct 16: Mechanisms of Pathogenicity. Two essay questions, pick two of six subjects. I chose the complement system and the role of iron in infection. Went okay, I think - except I forgot to mention the specificity of bacteria for transferrin.
Mon. Oct 19: Immunology. The big scary.
Fri. Oct 23: Animal Biotechnology. The big unknown.
Added to next week's schedule is the scholarship ceremony on Tuesday night and a guest speaker (a vet) from South Africa that, as VP of the student society, I am helping to organize on Thursday night. Oh, and a paper on habitat selection of American martens that is due on Tuesday.
So. No long and detailed blog posts for a few days - instead, please enjoy this squirrel obstacle course.
