Also correct me if I’m wrong, cavansite, but EF-P that you’re working on there would totally make a great antibiotic target, wouldn’t it?

It absolutely would! At least in Salmonella, the EF-P knockout is not only attenuated for virulence but also hyper susceptible to a super broad range of antibiotic classes. :)

Ask the expert, get the answer.
(I didn’t reblog/ask to make this point, but here’s a philosophy of science/ethics thing some readers may not realize: I’m a privileged male-shaped person 6 months out from my PhD, and I’m older.  She’s a lady in undergrad.  None of that matters.  When it comes to EF-P, she’s the expert.  And even if she wasn’t, she’s my colleague in science, even though I’ve never even met her.  Deferring to her expertise here is the basic level of decency that a scientist should show to another scientist.Hate feeling like I have to make that point just because I asked a question, but I wanted to take the opportunity to soapbox).

Wait you’re just saying you *look* 12 here, right? You weren’t like, incredibly mature and also in undergrad at 12? Because if so I want to pitch a story on you for WIRED…:P

Look 12!! If you reverse the 1 and 2 you’re much closer to my actual age.

Also thank you for the words last night re: wanting things and too much drive being difficult. It feels really good to hear that, especially from someone almost exactly where I’d like to be in however many years.
