Looking forward to the participants,


Key points:

Since it’s raining everywhere, one can capture Earthworms and start culturing them.

  1. What would be the research question that we can address in native Earthworms.

  2. Why do we need to make damp soil fertile and porous?? Can earthworm be not able to make damp soil fertile and porous since they are the farmers friends??

  3. do earthworm die if placed in water?

  4. does water enters the body of earthworm and they swell and die?

  5. What do we mean by Earthworms breath through the skin?

  6. What’s the role of Mucosal lining? What’s Mucosal layer made of?

  7. How does watery medium help in the diffusion?

  8. This means if mucosa gets dehydrated, things may go bad, right?!! Can there be illnesses like that?

  9. The Scnn1b-Tg mouse model recapitulates many features of cystic fibrosis (CF) and other human airway diseases associated with relative dehydration of airway surfaces (2), including chronic bronchitis (CB) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2659461/

  10. Can we have earthworm as a model for addressing questions like Cystic Fibrosis?

  11. If water is needed for exchange of gases during respiration, why are earthworms running away from water during rainy days?

  12. Why salt water irritates in eye, so why in case of RER (Rapid Escape Response), earthworm comes out out of NaCl containing medium???

  13. C ELEGANS & CYSTIC FIBROSIS : The cystic-fibrosis-associated ΔF508 mutation confers post-transcriptional destabilization on the C. elegans

  14. RER: To study ventral-Nerve chord Regeneration, to check the damage in the nerve chord.BEHAVIORAL EVIDENCE FOR VENTRAL NERVE CORD DAMAGE!!!???

  15. If the earthworm is able to climb the wall of the test tube, it confirms that it’s nerve chord in healthy.

  16. Is there a difference between HEALING and REGENERATION ?

  17. Are Segmental Ganglia like distributed brain?

  18. Make a lesion on Nerve Chord at ventral body side of an earthworm, what are we cuttion by put a lesion on ventral side Are we cutting axon? Or Dendrites? Which parts of Neural cells or processes?

  19. "In human adults, the wound repair process commonly leads to a non-functioning mass of fibrotic tissue known as a scar. By contrast, early in gestation, injured fetal tissues can be completely recreated…"Wound repair and regeneration
