Hyman Lab Show ‘n’ Tell

During the Show ‘n’ Tell session at “MPI-CBG Day” last week, the Hyman lab put on interactive and edible demonstrations for our visitors. Amayra made Spanish tortillas in the form of cells and spindles; Susanne, Andrea, and Marit taught people everything they wanted to know about C. elegans (and gummy worms); and Jeff put on a protein purification demo featuring everyone’s favorite “proteins” — candy bars. Andrés also made some very cool (not edible) representations of liquid-liquid phase separation. Thanks to the whole lab for getting involved and putting on a great show!
