My Marie Curie fellowship will end on March 31st, and since I’m in my last lap I’m working really hard to get as many results as possible before it is over. It looks quite good actually. I’m currently writing up a paper about some spectroscopic and electrochemical studies I have done on my proteins, and I have recently obtained some protein crystals of what I hope is protein in complex with DNA (see picture), which will bring my project a lot further if we can get the structure of it. Protein crystals are so beautiful, and I always get a big kick when I see them appear. I also have some more stuff going on, so my hope is to get three papers published based on what I have done during my project. I have learned so many new things here at the ITQB (which is one of the goals of a MC-fellowship), and made many new friends and collaborators, so I’m really happy with my stay and would never have been without it.
Have a nice weekend!
