Adaptation of an animal(:

Meristem is the undifferentiated tissue from which new cells are formed, as at the tip of a stem or root.

P.S.  It’s only 11:36pm now, but i don’t know why the date is on septemer 3 already :/ ?

I can’t believe I finally finished this book!:D I don’t usually read much, so I feel really accomplish finish reading one book. 😛  I was surprised when I knew that the author went to the Kitum Cave.  It was such a brave decision for him!  The cave is full of mystery and viruses, and I would try to stay away from it instead of exploring in there.  The fact that it was carved by elephants was interesting.  How the spiders can spread the viruses and knowing that it might happen someday again scared me.  I like how the author talks about the other virus too.  Do the viruses never die?  They will be back according to the book, will we be able to expect it or prevent it before it happens?  I still can’t believe that I finished reading this book! 😛

Genetically modified organism tomato(:

GMO is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques .
Tomatoes were produced by the DNA technology, combining genes from different organisms.

Eubacteria- yogurt(:

Most eubacteria are helpful, like they turn milk into yogurt when the fermentation is completed.

Pollen- inside the flower(:

Pollen is yellow, dust like and produced by the male part of the flower(stamen).

P.S. I had to type this twice:/ the first time i posted it all the descriptions disappeared.

The Hot Zone#3 :3

It’s really crazy that they had to kill about 400 monkeys!  Working in the hot zone sounds more and more dangerous as the book goes on.  I have no idea how people can work calmly in there!  There is also a 18 year olds working, and I would just freak out if I had to go into the hot zone.  I feel so bad for Nancy that she couldn’t see her father before he died. 😦 Nancy has such a great personality that she would rather stay with the team and resolve the crisis than seeing her father one last time.  It really worries me when I read about the holes in their suits.  Are the suits safe enough for them to work in the hot zone? And duct taping it would really fix it?  It just doesn’t sound safe to me.  I don’t really get how the gray area works?  What would happen if the media found them the first place? Would the media mess up the army’s plan?
