This week we delve into the genes of the mystery organism. Here’s a short snippet of DNA:
5 points for the first person to pick the genus and species, and 5 points to the first person who can explain why this particular gene was targeted for study.
I’ll post the answer tomorrow. Since we’ve reached the end of the month, I’ll tally all the points from the preceding mysteries and announce the March/April mystery winner, who is entitled to either 1) any 8 x 10 print from my photo galleries, or 2) a guest blog slot on any (safe for work) topic.
