Cancer bio exam:

Question: You think some rat skin tumors are caused by a chemical that mutates ras. How would you test this?

Another Question: Patient X blah, patient Y blah, etc etc. You have herceptin, iressa and this one drug (forgot the name) that dissociates ras from the membrane, inhibiting it….

Me, back to first question: i’d culture rat skin cells, add the chemical, see if I get skin tumors to make sure I did my stuff correctly, and if I did get tumors I would use that drug from the other question that inhibits ras activity. If tumor growth slows down/stop/etc I have evidence that the carcinogen mutates ras.

I’m sure that wasn’t the direction that they wanted me to go with the assay, but this worked and it seemed more elegant than alternatives so…

Fuck it. I’m a molecular biologist I’m just going to genetically engineer myself a husband.

Are you sure you want one? They’re kinda high maintenance

Wait what??? Don’t you put them in a cage and give them food and water every day? I thought that was how husbands worked…

Part of a previous midterm for cancer bio said “be sure to label abscissa and ordinate” and my friend and I were like the fuck.

We looked it up. It means “label the x and y axis” 

Like are you fucking kidding me. If I saw that on an exam it’d trip me up so much.

It’s funny how in your lower divs you can just google something and be like oh hey khan academy to the rescue and then in your upperdivs you’re like “hm my google search came up with this paper in nature… it looks promising”

I’VE BEEN STUDYING FOR THIS CLASS FOR 16 HOURS NOW.

In comparison, I’ll study for genetics for like 5. And I’m also 100% sure I’ll feel more comfortable taking the genetics midterm tomorrow than the cancer bio one.
