      Sometimes it can be a very stressful job, especially when experiments don’t work out the way you planned them or if something goes wrong. Once I was growing my cells for months and bacteria started to grow in them so I had to throw them all out and start again! It’s important to know that it can happen to anyone and we just have to try again until it works.
