On behalf of Arunan MC:
LOOKING FOR SOME PATIENT READING & COMMENTS ON CULMINATION OF PART-I OF COLLABORATIVE ALL-INDIA LEVEL LAB (CALL).

Please consider this as another MAKER SPACE movement (this started in individual kitchens, in April 2020, across the country):

NOTE: A PG cubist from one part of the subcontinent asks a first year UG cubist to share the details (see how he spells it!) of her successful ‘make’ of the alternate home-made medium for growth of the 6 times Nobel prize winning model, the Fruitfly, that visits/ lives in every house (with hardly any recognition of its power!), so that all across the country can collaborate in further studies in their CUBE Home Labs:

Note: names of Cubists have been hidden here, and may be added back as and when they enter the conversation.

"Now that we have a successful media of ‘@⁨AS’ CUBE Nattiia⁩ in terms of

  1. good number of Larvae growth, pupae formation, next generation fruit flies

  2. No contamination in the medium.

let’s devise and reproduce the medium for (all) CUBists across India who wish to make a Home Made Medium for culturing fruit flies during the lock down, so that it is a reproducible result that can be STANDARDISED for everyone!

  1. So the quantity of water (how did you measure the amount of water - 500ml, which vessel was used?)
  2. How much time did you cook the medium?

Other modifications can be added, if needed, for the medium
