Teaching (Molecular and Cell biology). Potent inducer of apoptosis. Research (cancer stuff mainly), cycling and birdwatching. Sadly, not in that order.

Proper science. Just a thought: If CRISP-R inactivation WntA causes wing pattern change, does the 'Butterfly effect' of chaos theory change?

In other news, University qualifications have sufficient value to warrant cheating, which isn't a problem.

Why don't pairs of daughter cells behave the same? Nice potential mechanisms explained in here. This has messed up many of my experiments...

Not in the NHS... Graduates are doing genetic diagnosis/analysis jobs that require only 3 GCSEs (apparently).
