abbreviations i can't understand - in this forum (Apr/12/2007 )
never saw this before !
yep, also w/o for without.
my supervisor once sent me an email starting FYI. I had no idea then what that mean but now used it myself. also like btw.
FYI: For Your Information
BTW: By the way
I saw 'W' in Ramen menu in Japan and that was supposed to mean 'double' serving. I asked 'how' and was told because they sound the same.
I haven't noticed that here- but then I'm still stuck on picture menu's as I can't read most things here. The thought of double servings makes my stomach ache- one size is large enough.
I have some questions (apologies in advance if they've been answered before).
What is ChIP? I keep reading on this here forum thingy and the only thing I've figured out that there's not FISH with it or any tomato ketchup (or salt and vinegar for that matter).
and is it RT-PCR for reverse transcriptase PCR and rtPCR for real-time PCR?
yours etc. etc.
Eternally lost in the Lab
happy all hallows eve.
FISH - Flourescent in situ Hybridization.
yes, i think so
i saw this on our fridge (underlined W + deodorizer)
are there little balls on the points of the w?
what is the brand of refrigerator?
i suspect that the underlined w that you are referring to is the brand symbol for westinghouse.
no, it's SHARP
can you show a picture?
(i still think it's a brand logo).
I am wondering the same...do anyone know?
Some abbrevs I saw in the forum and have to look up:
OMG: oh my god
GWB: a 'lame duck' politician now
IIRC: if I recall correct
YMMV: your mileage may vary (i.e. your experience may differ)
P.S. Rt/RT-PCR I learnt as abbreviation for "reverse transcriptase PCR". Real-time I know as Q-PCR or qPCR (quantitative)
