Tips for Optimization and Improving Reproducibility

Thus far, my thesis work has focused on optimizing an assay that my PI and I designed to answer a bigger question. By optimizing I mean tweaking the protocol to ensure the assay is reproducible and reliable (haven’t you heard about the Reproducibility Crisis?). When I began work on this project, I had no idea the time and extreme attention to detail it would require. I began graduate school only a few months after I earned my bachelor’s degree and my bench experience was very limited. Prior to joining my thesis lab, I never spent longer than 3-months in any...
