|Help, PHD Comic

Can someone explain to me the last panel in this comic? I am very weak in my biochemistry... or at least that's what I think they're getting at with the joke...|
I don't get it either. I searched for "thn qu" and got a lot of netspeak for "thank you".
In this comic's thread
, sludtke42 says, "The third seems to interpret to wham bam thank you mam, but clearly there is more to it. No idea what the symbols are... "
Also, I'd love to go as a zinc finger (or a leucine zipper!) but I'm not going to a party w/ biology people.
I was a knockout mouse last year.
Were you missing a particular gene (and if so, which one) or did you go as a particularly sexy rodent? ;-)
I am totally going as a knockout mouse this year :) I even have a fake nobel prize to carry around.
If I were partying with biology people, I'd totally be TATA binding protein.
I'm considering going as 'breast cancer awareness month', although I'll save TATA-binding protein for later. ;-D
my PI helped solve that structure! (human version)
he even has a t-shirt with it on the front ... so nerdy.
That's the Wham-bam Thank you, ma'am holoenzyme which Professor Xavier Fuggedaboudit discovered in the late 80's at NYU if I remember correctly.. He shared the Nobel with Margaret EyyWhatchoodooin for her cloning work. Truly seminal, seminal research.
