The journey begins

For our first year in the TIME class me and Jasmine decided to brave unknown territory. We both became interested in the subject of cancer and began looking at our own interests. After joining together we started down a path filled with articles upon articles about Molluscs, cancer, and carcinogens. We settled on the topic of cancer models in bivalve molluscs , and that’s where our journey began. We came to a slight dilemma, neither of us knew anything about clams, how durable they were, or how to care for them. We decided to order a “warm-up” group of clams. We wanted tnoaho learn how to care for them, Dissect them, mark them, and take their blood. We’ve drilled holes in them, marked them with fingernail polish, fed them algae tablets, and monitored their health daily. As of right now we’ve lost 3 of our original 22 due to our experimennoah1bts on how to take blood. When we finally expose them to our carcinogens, Glyphosate,ethanol, and chewing tobacco extract, they will be in a larger permanent containment. We look forward to our continued experiment throughout the year and we hope for spectacular results.
