As you have heard by now, our lab (like all classes at IUP main campus) is canceled for today. Please stay safe while this cold front passes.
We'll resume our schedule next week, and pick-up our meiosis exercise then. In the meantime, I'll pass along a recent news article about axolotl salamanders, and efforts to decode their DNA. Axolotls are of great interest in medicine because they are the only vertebrate animal that is able to regenerate nearly any of its body parts if they are lost.
Imagine if humans had the ability to re-grow lost fingers or limbs? Perhaps learning about how axolotls achieve this kind of regrowth will someday get us there.
See you next week -
