…so no blogging. Instead, I’ll leave you with a “make sexy time” photo (to steal Borat’s phrase):
It’s E. coli having sex. Well, actually it’s conjugation. Many bacteria have plasmids which are ‘mini-chromosomes’ (antibiotic resistance genes are often found on plasmids). The bacteria are able to build protein tubes (“pili”) and send copies of plasmids to another cell.
Dude: You just blogged that you’re not blogging. Now I have cognitive dissonance. Or perhaps you do.
But happy birthday!
Happy Birthday from South Africa 🙂
Cheers Dr Mike, Happy B-day
Happy (belated) birthday!!!
Get yourself an E. coli giant plush microbe. My 8 month old girl got Ebola for Christmas. 🙂
Hey, Mike, Happy Birthday!
Aw yeah. You better transfer those plasmids for genetic recombination.
