Suds passed his Quals, too!
Sudarshan Pinglay is now officially a Ph. D. candidate! After a deep struggle with chromatin, Pinglay finally wrestled the helix into submission using only his Brown Belt in Karate, his proclivity for Death Metal and the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of a life in the dusty refuse of the Boeke lab (in Hopkins). Now, with a shiny bench, a gilded pipette and the vision required to change the world, he will solve transcriptional regulation once and for all. Or, it's possible that he will wind up with hands growing out of his knees. Or something. Could be good for piano tricks.
