Jane Pernes and Johanna Viluma, both current students at the University of Bristol, have spent their July and August working on several research projects in our lab. Jane worked with Danilo on the expression and purification of human and bacterial ribosomal proteins, whilst Jane worked on NMR data analyses, including protein backbone assignment and distance measurements using NOE experiments. Both Jane and Johanna did excellent jobs in their ‘summer’ research. We hope that they have enjoyed their stay in New Zealand and we wish them the very best of luck in their future studies and careers.
