Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Science

I do a fair amount of field work and I do a lot of behavioral work in the lab, so I don’t usually feel like the stereotypical scientist in the white lab coat.  Heck, I don’t even OWN a lab coat!  But now and then I work on something that looks so stereotypically like “science” that I have to laugh to myself just a little.  Case in point:

protein analysis

Protein analysis

Seriously, is there a bigger science cliché than a bunch of colored fluids in tubes?  This test tells me how much protein is available inside giant water bug eggs.  The darker purple, the more protein there is!
