Biting More Than I Can Chew

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

She said that I will manage it. My supervisor I mean. But seriously, there is so much i do not know about the title given. As some of you might know, I study mainly about fish and perhaps some prawns. Microbs are perhaps the last thing I would want to study. But guess what... my supervisor's field of study is microbiology. Arggghhhh... my final year project will be on probiotics for a certain marine fish. And the fish isn't cheap. It's such a headache. I am totally clueless about bacteria culture. Don't even know how to prepare the culture medium. What more about bacterial challenge and what-so-ever. So much reading to do. So much work to handle. So much more to learn...

Then again there are master students there to guide us. They should be very useful since they are from biotech bacground. Hopefully...

medie, my supervisor is only interested in doing her stuff. flexible lecturers are fully occupied.

ichi, i dun quite understand. lets say Bacillus cereus. Does all bacillus cereus strain look the same? And why are some of them pathogenic and some aren't?
