Laboratory pareidolia

Pareidolia is everywhere, as you know. We see Jesus or Mary on trees, pieces of toast, and on sheet metal.

Finally, though, through the wonder of science, we finally see some Jesus pareidolia in a molecular biology lab!

Are you ready for Jesus on a polyacrylimide gel used to separate proteins?

I consider it a most holy sign that Alex‘s next attempt at an immunoprecipitation will be a success.

    What does it mean if I see my angry aunt’s face in my tree stump?

    So…
    Is Jesus giving us the finger?
