Cut It Out
Sure, this website’s name could double for what you might say to that labmate who keeps changing the temperature of your water bath, but in this context Cut It Out refers to the fun (and slightly addicting) online game by New England Biolabs. If you’ve been swept up in the recent trend of word games, you’ll appreciate this Scrabble-meets-strategy enzyme game (yes, enzyme game) in which you try to build restriction enzyme recognition sequences on the game board corresponding to the enzyme cards held in your hand. Each matching sequence earns you points, and 100 points wins you the game. You can play against the computer (easy, medium, or hard), or if you create an account you can challenge your friends. So, the next time you’re waiting for that digest to finish, this may help you kill the time (but you didn’t hear that from me).
