As the lockdown was announced, none of the CUBE students could come to the lab. They were managing the lab for over 8 years. For the first time, we had to interrupt their enthusiasm to enter the CUBE lab.
Yesterday I went to the CUBE lab, took five bottles of Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) of CsBz variety, and aboother five empty media bottles, one beaker containing Hydra viridis (brown hydra), some Yeast granules and five bottles of Moina (water fleas). @KiranyadavR and @yash_sheregare helped me find the supplies required through phone conference. They have all reached safely and occupied my son’s study table at home.
Left snails, earthworm, butterflies, aquarium with plenty of fish were left behind, but in the safe custody of Rossi D’Souza, who is locked down inside the campus.
Meanwhile CUBE students are doing online causery everyday through https://webinar.metastudio.org
