Seeing Red in Molecular Biology Labs

January 1, 2012 - 11:08 -- Mark Benedict

Quick question: For those of you who work in a recombinant DNA lab, what is the most hazardous chemical that you use on a daily basis? To put it another way, what chemical do you ALWAYS wear gloves to handle? Probably the same one that I do, but risk perception and reality aren’t always the same thing.

My introduction

October 31, 2010 - 06:09 -- Ron Marchand

My name is Ron Marchand (1951), Dutch, biologist by training and I started to work in malaria entomology in 1978 with studies on the mating behaviour and biochemical identification of sibling species of the An. gambiae Group in Tanzania. For a too short time after that I was involved in a prematurely ended research programme to develop genetic control methods for malaria vectors in the Netherlands.
