Summer UROP creating a vector with a tagged version of the growth receptor Her2, to study crosstalk in prostate cancer.

"Spit on a bat before using it for the 1st time to make it lucky."

I would give a player 5 bats that have been spit on and 5 that have not. He would then rotate through the bats, not knowing which were lucky. I would then count the number of home runs hit with each bat, and see if the spit on bats had more home runs attributed to them.
