Martian DNA?

So they want to send a DNA sequencing instrument to the surface of Mars.

  Two groups seem to be on a race to get there first and I think there is nothing wrong with a little bit of health competition. Given that the previous methods of sample testing have always been brought back to earth, this project would solve a lot of problems that came with that.
Once samples were removed from their environment they become compromised. Since sample reading will be beamed back to Earth this saves a tremendous amount of money on return missions not to mention on the logistics. This instrument lets the samples stay in their atmosphere while not being handled by any biological alien properties removing all previous contamination issues. I think it might be an assumption to believe that all lifeforms have the same biological makeup. Wouldn’t it be interesting if we found an alternative to DNA or a super strand DNA. If, however, we do find DNA then I think it is safe to assume that life on Planet Mars and life on Planet Earth come from the same origin.

Biolytic Food Drive

For the Holiday Season Biolytic Lab Performance, Inc. held a food drive to collect for the Alameda County Food Bank.

Employees, friends and family all contributed to a total of 75 pounds of canned and dry goods!The Alameda County Community Food Bank serves 1 in 6 county residents. The Food Bank also serves 49,000 people each week—from Berkeley to Fremont, Oakland to Livermore. Food & Fund Drives are a vital resource for our neighbors facing hunger. No one should suffer from hunger especially in their golden years — yet thousands of seniors turn to the Food Bank to meet their most basic need. Nearly two-thirds of the people they serve are children and seniors, our community’s most vulnerable populations. 

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” – Franklin Delano Roosevelt
