The boring parts of science

Science is exciting, right? You explore, you experiment, you make discoveries. You see things for the first time! Science is fun.

But, it also has its boring parts.

Today, for example, I spent four hours pipetting, non-stop. 280 tubes. No robots, no multichannel pipette. Just manual labor.

One boring part of science.
I should probably have cleaned my bench before taking a picture. I’m not usually this messy, but these are hectic times.

The pipetting marathon is for an experiment, which I’m very much looking forward to seeing the results. And, just thinking about that now, the thrill of observing something new, already made today’s boring parts worthwhile.
