Friday Whatsit for July 16, 2010

July 16, 2010

what is this?

What is this rainbow thing?

What would we do without the Friday Whatsit? Find another easy way to generate content perhaps?

This trippy looking thing is an important tool for biologists, especially in the fields of development and genetics. What is it? Leave your guesses in the comments section and look for the answer on Monday.

    Hmm, my guess is some part of a Drosophila melanogaster. Mmm, FlyNap…

    • Ah, FlyNap :D. That was simultaneously the best and worst biology class I have ever taken.

      Very good guess, but no, not part of a fly. I should do a fly one though. I could make reference to Jeff Goldblum. Or something.

  2. Hey, ok, I get it, I guess – but does this really work?

    • Does what really work? The comments section? Yes. If you think you know the answer, post it here and normally it will just show up on the page. Your comment got caught in the spam filter for some reason, so it took a little longer to get to the page. Guess fast though, the answer will post in about 30 min.
