In honor of Dorothy Hodgkin

Google’s doodle of the day honors Dorothy Hodgkin, Nobel prize winner and developer of protein crystallography.  The last year of work before I was laid off was the most fun I ever had.  I spent it working in the structural biology lab, crystallizing and solving kinase proteins.  I had a blast.  It was cut short by a bean counter.

This is the last protein I ever crystallized and solved with my lab partners.  You can find it in the public domain at the RCSB under the kinase name PRPF4b:

  1. That is really wonderful, Riverdaughter! Except the part where you don’t get to do that all the time anymore.

  2. The Willards of Wall Street thank you for your hard work adding value to the company so they could unload its carcass at a handsome profit.
