Our new Tecan liquid handling robot is here! It started to learn the TruSeq protocol for constructing genomic libraries. Shani will use it to construct 300 libraries for genomic sequencing of our large population sample from Cataglyphis niger, for our GWAS project. We’re still getting to know each other, but it seems we’re going to have a wonderful and productive relationship. So we decided to name it נח (Noah). Here it is in action!
