Cross-resistance

Cross-resistance

(Science: immunology, microbiology) immunologic resistance to the pathogenic effects of a microorganism because of previous exposure to another species or type having cross reactive antigens.

this phenomenon is seen in microbes that acquire resistance to one drug through direct exposure and turn out to have resistance to one or more other drugs to which it has not been exposed. Cross-resistance arises because the mechanism of resistance to several drugs is the same and arises through the identical genetic mutations.

HELP with planaria...

... without cutting them up! Light sensitivity, what is their favourite smell? colour of substrate, how strong must the temptation be to make them cross a white line etc. The best thing is if you colour spot individuals, and find that some like to do one thing and others don't.

Somatic Fusion and Reproduction

... few quick questions first: Do somatic fusion hybrids display characteristics of both cell donors at the same time? Or is it similar to a dihybrid cross, where some plants would show one characteristic and another one another? Which leads on to another question... If I were to successfully fuse ...
