The molecular research we do in the lab involves materials and chemicals with cool names. Stuff like: Taqman (tm), Sybrgreen (tm), DNA, RNA, RNase away (tm), cocktails, master mixes, magnesium chloride, probes, and primers. I can think of all sorts of alternative uses for the names, relating mostly to band names.

Taqman and The Primers could open for Probe at MgCl2, the hot new club where all the uber-cool people go.

DJ MasterMix would spin tunes on college night.

The club would serve all sorts of spiffy drinks like Sybrgreen, DNA, and RNA in those test tube shotglasses. The bartenders and servers would wear lab coats complete with pocket protectors.

Yep, I'm a big dork. :p
