Things to Keep in Mind

Wikispaces does not like it when you have more than 3 windows open at a time! It be slow.
Store reagents at the proper temperature & in the right location (e.g. correct freezer box)
Label all reagents (tubes, boxes, liguids, powders) with VDS and Date (also include your initials if it is yours)
Write down everything that you do in lab into your lab notebook
Clean your area when done and return reagents and materials to their 'homes
