Dedicated to another lost icon, RIP Omar Sharif.

Angus gets exposed to comet bacteria and winds up mutating into a Daywalker. CJ manages to escape the infection but winds up in a laboratory full of bras and squatty, smelly douchebags. The  good part, there’s a cute girl there.  For the Horde!!!

Science Fiction becoming Science Fact or at least current technology. Nanopore sequencing.

Nanopore sequencing is a relatively simple but elegant technology, capable of reading long stretches of native (unamplified) DNA with little processing involved. Essentially, a small pore roughly 1 nanometer in diameter (about 100,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair) that is made either by a biological molecule, such as α-hemolysin, that traverses a membrane or by “punching” a pore through a solid support using an ion beam. The system is then bathed in a conductive fluid and a voltage potential is applied across the membrane-pore complex. As each DNA strand or single nucleotide is electrophoretically driven through the pore, the current fluctuates and is picked up by a detector allowing the sequence or nucleotides to be read.


Based on recent usage of the technology, nanopore sequencers certainly seem very capable of being able to perform at the front lines of an infection hot zone, providing valuable data to medical personnel.

Questions of the week


Is it possible to shrink things, especially humans, like in Ant man or other similar movies?

Or does it go against physics?
