No penguin genome? No problem!

After Franziska's recent success in publishing on a thermophilic archaeon, Emily decided that she, too, needed to be extreme in her quest for a scientific breakthrough. Thus began her journey to Antarctica to find a cryophile in which to study ribosome biogenesis. Unfortunately, she was unsuccessful in convincing the Chilean Army's "science station" base to let her return with biological samples. But she did bring back some great baby penguin pictures!

(And when you see her, you should ask her to do her penguin walk imitation!)
