Hey man, look at me rocking out!
First night of work after my Covid quarantine, feeling alright but it's quiet and boring and the good chair is gone now. T_T
Did you catch the rona? :oops: I was actually just talking to a friend last night who got it. I was coming into town and going to hang out with him but he was feeling sick and said we shouldn't hang out just in case. Then, cue classic covid symptoms (loss of smell, body aches, dizziness), and a positive covid test. Soooo I'm glad we didn't hang out lmao

I extracted some DNA from a banana because it's the only experiment from my genetic engineering book that I can do right now. Going to try to get some lab equipment by the end of the year so I can start actually genetically engineering some bacteria. Or yeast. Don't know which one yet.

sounds really interesting actually


what would you be ‘training’ the yeast to do?

Probably either glow just to see that it works. Or produce some useful proteins that could be excreted using a secretion factor, which is like a protein that gets recognized by the yeast as something that needs to be taken outside the cell. I'm just trying to learn for the time being. My future goal is to make a cheaper way of producing hormones by engineering cells to use the steroidogenesis pathway. Steroidogenesis is what turns cholesterol into different hormones like testosterone, progesterone, and estradiol for example.

Very cool. Interested to see where you go with this. One scientist to another, I tip my hat

Rather accurate.

Just give it a few years, you will grow to love it.

Just give it a few years and you will know why. Just make sure to get around the whole fandom, every furry centric website, porn site, and furcons. You will get it eventually.

It means you've seen and done it all. And then when you think you've seen and done it all, there's more to see and do.

Your shades are overrated as hell.

Also I enjoyed Furry Force as well.
