is an originator of the "magic
realism" mode of scientific investigation, and will become one of the first successful magical scientists in America. She has written a masters thesis based in part on her own experiences, weaving together the myths and realism of protein
destabilizing domains. Although Monica is often considered to use the scientific style of magical realism, her works display elements of post-genomic
pragmatism, and as such her style cannot be described as purely adhering to magic, an issue frequently overlooked by her disciples. Monica also holds to a very methodical literary routine, leading her to question whether the promise of genome
editing is myth or reality. |

Biography: In Norse mythology, Rigmor (Old Norse for "Legumain Queen") is a goddess associated with beauty, fertility, gold, death, and of course legumain. Rigmor is the owner of the overexpressing legumain HEK cell line, rides a chariot pulled by two graduate students, keeps the Postdoc Hildisvíni by her side, and possesses a cloak of immune serum. Rigmor is a faculty member of Universitas Osloensis, a member of the karakterpanelet, and a practitioner of “building peace in the minds of men and women.” Stemming from Old Norse Rigamor, modern forms of the name include Rigmarole, Rigodon, Rigoletto, and Ringo Starr.

|Biography: (affectionately known as Mr. D’oswaldo or Waldo to his followers) is an Italian scientist and preacher. While finishing his undergraduate work in Italy in 1204, Waldo had a vision that directed him to Lausanne, where he lost his taste for the worldly life of GST pulldowns and joined the poor masses begging at ISREC, an event that moved him develop genome editing. In 1219, he went to San Diego in an attempt to convert the unbelievers to put an end to the conflict of the inflammatory cell death. Waldo is one of the most venerated scientific gypsies in history, recently spending his time frolicking between the Salvesen and Matsuzawa labs, and is a world renowned practitioner of the Tiramisu: 2 eggs, 250g mascarpone cheese (Italian imported, not American), 2 table spoons sugar, fingerlady biscuits (savoiardi), espresso coffee, cocoa powder. Incubate at 4°C overnight or so.|
