comment Cause of Crease in Drupe Fruit
Know any proteins related (screen via Western) or genes (q-PCR)? We could grab samples in various stages during carpel development (though this particular set of trees might not make it to next year).

comment Cause of Crease in Drupe Fruit
@Ilan I actually don't know if this just on the surface at the fruit or if it extends down to the stone. That may vary based on species even. I'm not sure on how many species will be tested, but distorting the line in peaches seems to be an unexpected phenotype.

comment Cause of Crease in Drupe Fruit
@Ilan Part of the normal state. The outside of the fruit tends to have one line/partition/crease going down it from the outside. I'm uncertain if there is a technical name, which is where I could be failing in my lit review. I suppose I could put up a picture and circle what I mean.

comment How the pattern of fertilization path is determined before the cell division to form the blastocyst? Is it individually specific?
Is the article one of these: nopr.niscair.res.in/handle/123456789/30751 ? It seems like "Science Reporter" is behind a pay wall, but I was looking at least for the article.

comment How to obtain bacteria samples at home?
@MarchHo, Holding a temp accurately close to room temp is much harder than an elevated or refrigerated condition. Our lab dropped some serious cash for an incubator that can really accurately maintain even 30oC. At people's home, I just don't think you're going to get that kind of accuracy. You'll note I said I put them on top of my dryer which tends to be 27-39oC (family is almost constantly doing laundry).

comment Species ID: Buckyball-like fungus
Sorry, I mean the top heading title not the question title. The "Edit: I'm an idiot..." part is kind of jarring. I don't think it needs to be deleted. Maybe a more subtle note after the link? Anyway, I guess this is more of a style point so feel free to ignore.

I understand the face palm, but it might be more useful to future readers if you change the title again.
