Whiteboard screenshot from yesterday’s ( 09th November 2020 ) CUBE CHATSHAALA session what a great beginning of Season 3 Episode 1)

Cubist from Cube Elphinstone but now in CUBE HOME LAB DAHANU ROAD MUMBAI harvested three Earthworm from his garden and now he’s maintaining those three Earthworm in tissue paper cup Culture method.
What’s the design and principle of Cup Culture Method??.

Tissue paper is the source of cellulose but are we giving all the essential nutrients to Earthworm by keep them in Moist tissue paper condition???..
Which water( Tap water and Dechlorinated water) is to be suitable to moist tissue paper?..
Whiteboard screenshot A part of CUBE CHATSHAALA…

Growth Vs. regeneration
What’s the difference??..
On what basis are we saying that amputed part of an Eathworm is actually regenerating??..

What’s clitellum?..
Earthworm faeces Vs. Earthworm cocoon??..

One of the great finding from yesterday’s discussion…
To study the role of clitellum in regeneration Cubists made three designs to gave a cut…

  1. Cut was made on the 10S segment of posterior part…
  2. Cut was made on 55th segment form posterior part.
  3. Cut was made on 10th segment from posterior part of Earthworm

But the great finding was posterior which was cut in such a way that none of the segment clitellum was left.

It has been observed that that posterior part was survived for 26 days.

But how what’s the biology of it?. How can a part survived for 26days without mouth without feeling.

Or how did that part survived itself from infection?..
How do we do WBC’S staining?..
Can we check is there any cell which is actually preventing this part from infection?..
Similarly can we look for immune cells in Fruit fly & Moina?..
Can we check which bacterium are there in the gut of Moina?..
Can we culture those bacteria streaking them on Nutrient Agar medium plate?..

What’s the principle of Streaking?.. why do we make zigzag pattern?..
