Visit to the Tallinn University of Technology
Adam Opalski spent four weeks in the laboratory of Professor Scheler at Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. This visit was funded under the „Lab visit under CREATE project“ competition. Adam tackles the problem of bacteria becoming resistant to drugs and how to combat that adversity. The aim of his visit was to learn the fundamentals of barcoding aqueous droplets suspended in fluorinated oil. Adam had the possibility to learn, among others, principles of choosing the fluorescent markers or requirements for the droplets used in the assay. He also learned how the experimental protocol is executed and which elements are especially important.
Adam managed to achieve all the goals set before arrival. He learned how to use color-code droplets in order to produce barcoded droplet populations. During his time at TalTech, he developed his scientific skills as well as enjoyed immersion in the other culture, both in the laboratory and outside of it.
