Science Fun of the Week
(March 10th, 2017) Get ready for your weekly dose of science fun. Today: Polynesian deities under the microscope.
George McNamara (University of Miami) remembers:
"Tiki Goddess (right) is a trichrome-stained frontal baby mouse tissue section. She was named Tiki Goddess because the original headless scan was called Tiki God (left). I've asked several developmental biologists and/or anatomists whether Tiki is a she or a he. Apparently the key reproductive organs did not make this tissue section."
