      Hi rachel!!

      I love your questions (heart heart heart them!!) 🙂
      I use a lot of equipment…let me see yesterday I was using a special radioactivity lab because I was working with radiation, I also used a thing called a centrifuge to spin some tubes at very high G-force and a heat block to heat DNA up to 100oC! I was also growing bacteria in culture flasks in a shaking incubator with antibitotics and using a computer to answer some of the questions you guys have been sending! But I use lots of other stuff too – anything in particular you would like to know about? 🙂
