I loved working in this lab. Dave is a biologist's biologist. The range of projects was so exciting. I had come from the Taiz Lab at UC Santa Cruz, where I was practically the only US citizen, to this lab where only Yuzuru was from overseas. Yet one could not have assembled a more diverse group of people! No one had anything in common, except uniformly good humor and a love (tolerance?) of the same radio station - KPIG!

This photo was the one used on that first lab website, taken just outside the lab. Yes, that's the Monterey Bay in the background, and those are just clouds... not a chain of snowcapped volcanic peaks :-)
