Today is a big day for me as my very first first-author paper is published online today in Current Biology. Non-scientists can check out the press release here. I would like to celebrate by sharing my own #knityourthesis project - these bacterial cell cycle fingerless mittens.

DNA is blue and the cell divsion protein FtsZ is in red.
I originally designed these cell division mitts as a present for my boss, Petra Levin upon my graduation. I based the design on a cartoon detailing the bacterial cell cycle that appears in almost all of the presentations by our lab. I liked the mitts so much that I am now making a pair for myself. I also am making a hat that details the bacterial cell cycle that I am sure will be featured in a future blog post.
