A few weeks ago we were sequencing entire virus genomes from multiple hamsters and now we’re here. Hold on to your hats HKers, only way out is through.
My grand plan of tweeting full case details got Omicron'd. CHP doesn't even know what most of the cases are now. #Pending #ToBeProvided

As some of you may know, on Thursday 30th December we lost a member of our school community in a brutal and unprovoked attack. Zaian was brilliant. He was charming, charismatic, funny, and sensitive. His loss has left an enormous hole in our school. (1)

Good questions for poster visitors? “Is this what you initially thought would happen?” “What brought you to this system/question?” “Would the same thing happen if you tested this is a different species/location?”

Good presenters are patient, listen to and answer the question being asked. Are engaged and carrying the burden of the conversation. They show that like what they are talking about. They appreciate “easy” questions.
