Finally, success with the urchins: cell division under a microscope!
Quick update from the lab- potassium chloride injected sea urchins just successfully produced two batches of gametes! We pipetted the eggs and sperm together into a petri dish, rushed to the optical laboratory, and watched the first fertilized cells divide on a big screen. It was awesome. The crab orientation groups are generating strong batches of data and the sea grass photographing for the feeding experiment is also going well. Off to dinner in a few!
