Me and my work
It can be interesting and full of variety.
My Typical Day
This is a difficult one as each day is different
I could be cloning which basically means cutting and pasting bits of DNA or injecting worms with DNA. Or looking at the worms on the microscope. Or just routine work like maintaining the worms and ensuring they have enough food. I also may need to deal with queries and problems with various aspects of the lab.
