I'm pretty new at research and working at the lab, but the lab I work at is offering me one of two projects.. and I would love to hear some advice from you guys and which would be a better project. Since I'm new, I'm excited to do anything, but I dont really know much about the procedures, so any suggestions anyone has will be greatly appreciated.
generate chromosomal mutants in e. coli and then test their effects. techniques include transformation, western blots. I will be working with a graduate student on this project.
screen for mutants in e. coli using the beta gal assay. I will work on this alone.
ok, those are the stuff that I've been told.
Let's say you were in my position.. which project would you pick?
the main concern I have is, which project would take a shorter time to compelete. I officially graduate in 6 months, and that's all the time i have left at the lab; and i really dont want to leave a project unfinished..
and also, i want to learn as many techniques as i can.
so yes, please.. any suggestions.
