A simple guide to CRISPR, one of the biggest science stories of 2016
If you haven’t heard of CRISPR yet, the short explanation goes like this: In the past four years, scientists have figured out how to exploit a quirk in the immune systems of bacteria to edit genes in other organisms — plant genes, mouse genes, even human genes. With CRISPR, they can now make these edits quickly and cheaply, in days rather than weeks or months. In 2016 alone, researchers have shown CRISPR can do some truly astounding things, like create mushrooms that don’t brown easily or edit bone marrow cells in mice to treat sickle-cell anemia.

Birthday - EF Kala Yadav

Sunday, November 27, 2016

… and another birthday looms large and prominently on our platform .. our wishes to you Kala ji, and may all your wishes come true .. love from us all  !!

Theatre has taken a back seat in all debate and argument .. it should not .. for theatre is the grinding stone for all the film talent that is produced .. and there is much disdain to maintain and look after these guests of ours ..

But in the good ol’ days going to theatre was like a picnic, in sunshine and in sorrow .. etc ..

Now it breathes differently, the process of my engagements in the next few days .. we would like to some respite due to the age .. but it is relentless and persevered .. I think indication of joint pains and the obvious challenges do come about as a endurance test .. ready to indulge but painfully absent for most of the events … they are embarrassing and joint worthiness .. then of course the gay lothario and brings good cheer to all present here today ..

There is such a spate of writers in the city of Mumbai, all wishing that their tale of some measure be allowed to be present  : he suspected to be of religion and belief  ..

I am drifting again in some kind of oblivion .. for this and all that has been expressed was with me for a long period of time , now all gone with the wind !

I must collect my intellect and return .. tonight is a bad nightmare ..

As for the name Idek. Either don’t put a name or just write Sarah??? I don’t think you need to put a name anyway. But I’m not giving away my last name for privacy reasons lmao.
