Inertia

Still getting back to it after the long weekend. I was browsing around and thought that a lab at Brown University had already done my research five years ago, so I read through their research, and went through a couple of reviews and papers that branched off of their ideas. It turns out that their manipulation of furrows in frog cells had nothing to do with the microtubules and its diamagnetitism has an effect on how the cells divide, but not how the resulting tadpoles develop. While a lot of other people are working on magnetic tweezers, I haven't found anyone else working on the same size scale or force scale that I am working on. The upside: I now know more about other people's researcher, downside: didn't really go anywhere with my own today.
