You’ve probably found yourself, at some point or other in your research life, waiting for an experiment to come to fruition and asking yourself, “How long do I have to wait?”

Stephen W. Ragsdale, professor of biological chemistry at the University of Michigan Medical School, poses that very question in his tongue-in-cheek song “Enzyme Purification Blues,” which was recently uploaded to the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’sYouTube channel.

The song is based on the tune “How Long Blues” made famous in 1928 by performer Leroy Carr and briefly chronicles the ups and downs of Ragsdale’s experience with the enzyme Hydrogenase.
