Mike wins a poster prize!

Recently at the MB&B departmental retreat, J. Michael Charette represented the Baserga laboratory and took home second place in the post-doc poster contest! Instead of taking a life size representation of himself as Kat suggested, he decided instead to make a graphically stunning presentation of the massive amounts of work he did in August - a record 4500 western blots! These blots were represented in small figures 1 cm x 1cm in various color shades to form a magic eye image of a euglena - an organism that Mike's had a soft spot for (and I don't mean chloroplast) since his lowly graduate school days.

Congratulations Mike!
