Well, sad as it may be I finally made it into the basement in the building where I have worked for five + years – the Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility (GBSF) at UC Davis (the Genome Center is in the same building). There, down in the basement they were having an Open House for the CMGI – the Center for Molecular and Genomic Imaging. I knew of some of the stuff they did but had never been down to see their facility and their, well, toys. And it was really cool.
They also had a nice food spread upstairs on the first floor of our building that I discovered later. The best part of this spread were the animal chocolates and carvings:
Anyway – just a little post here. Oh, and they do some pretty cool science at the CMGI, including some interesting uses of CT, PET, SPECT, MRI, and more. You just never know what you will find in the basement …
