Just an update on the petri dishes. On Tuesday, we let them be, and let them multiply as bacteria tend to do. But today, after finishing with all the media things, we worked more on them. To put it simply, we transferred the jellyfish (not squid) gene and the bacteria into some more petri dishes, and we can only hope now that the bacteria will decide to take the gene into themselves. To accomplish this, we had to use a heatshock method (basically involved rapidly cooling and heating the bacteria) along with a large dosage of calcium. Well, that's all for now, guess everybody will see how they did tomorrow. Sigh, now if only I could remember how to make the text glow through html...

Oh yeah, if anybody needs to reach me, my email is
