Hmm well I suppose I study journals and my data most days. Usually i would read journals before i carry out an experiment and then run an experiment over a few days. Afterwards I study my results and see what they mean. So to conclude I have study days and experimental days- hope that makes sense?
Not study in the sense like secondary school studying but study as in researching what other groups have done I definitely do on the daily. I study websites that help to improve my protocols and help me come up with new experiments to try. This involves reading journals. Some take ages to read so maybe I only get through one a day.
