"I primarily did undergrad research in computational biology, so my first rotation in grad school was my first time doing "wet" molecular biology that wasn't for a lab course. I think I spent 1 1/2 weeks making gels with water. During that span of time, I asked a bunch of people what I was doing wrong and I got the usual advice to change the concentration of various things. Finally, a postdoc figured it out. The rest of my "wet lab" experiments went OK during that rotation!"
