We’re Up All Night to Get Data-UCSD Graduate Program Parody Video!

Graduate school in biosciences is tough. We know that. Four, six, even (heaven forbid!) eight years of your life dedicated to diving deeply into a research project can leave one, well, a bit “loopy” sometimes and you just need to blow off steam. An option to add some levity to the seriousness of all that [...]

Who has not caught themselves singing along to Queen’s number one hit “Bohemian Rhapsody”? Perhaps we’ve made up words when we didn’t know them! But, have any of you attempted to explain string theory to the tune? I’ll bet it didn’t go as well as in this new version by Tim Blais of A Capella [...]

Monday Music Video: Lab Rap Battle

Screen Shot 2013-05-12 at 10.23.16 PM

A while ago, I wrote about a science version of the popular Epic Rap Battles of History about a showdown between Einstein and Hawking. It was amusing and a great way to use popular culture to highlight science. Capitalizing on the successful genre of Epic Rap Battles of History, Life Technologies has created a video [...]

Monday Music Video: Biotech Support in Song

Life Technologies

During the time I taught laboratory courses here at the University of Illinois in cell and molecular biology (After nearly 20 years of that, I’ve moved to online teaching to give myself more flexibility for science outreach), I would often tell the students, particularly the ones who were considering going into research, that the best [...]

Ph.Diva from Life Technologies' new video!

What do you do when your lab results are perplexing and contradict or add a new element to a finding you thought you already had sewn up?

Monday Music Video

How I wish I had a wonderful science Nobel Prize music video in honor of today’s announcement of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology.

Monday Music Video: A Biochemical Cover of a Tune from Wicked!

The internet is full of re-jigged tunes where people force a narrative of scientific concepts into a recognizable song. We all know many of these can be painful to listen to (or watch if it is in video format). But today, I have one so well done, I can watch it over and over. I’ll [...]

And, while we’re talking Gaga, what about her well-known proclamation that people are who they are because they were Born That [...]
