Until about 1917 cyano was regarded a mold/ fungus.

Not what I have learned.
I would like to know your source. as a historical lesson for me e :) h?
Perhaps it was known by lay people as a mold?

You have to relate this statement in relation to the fact:

Base architecture:
Fusion cyanobacterium with a trypanosome like element.

The Genus Prototheca was described in 1894 by Kruger to designate
a group of non-pigmented unicellular organisms isolated from the mucous
flux of trees. Based on a yeast like appearance in culture, early investigators, including Kruger (1849 a, b) considered the organism to be a fungus. This view was generally accepted until West (1916) directed attention to its alga-like mode of reproduction. Unlike most yeasts, Prototheca does not propagate by budding, but by internally produced spores which are morphologically identical to the parent cell.This method
of sporulation is indistinguishable from that observed in the green alga chlorella. Based on this observationWest (1916) classified the organism in the chlorophyaceae. Etc...

Cultural Morphology:

On solid media, isolates of Prototheca are similar to many yeasts or yeast like fungi. cultures vary from white to cream colored and may be smooth, wrinkled, or pasty depending upon the strain. In diagnostic laboratory, the organism must be distinguished from species of candida and cryptococcus, and to a lesser extent from the yeast forms of Histoplasma and Blastomyces

ahh ..... who turn out the lights?


Our laboratory has developed Optical Mapping, a system for the construction of ordered restriction maps from individual DNA molecules. Our work centers on the development of new systems for genome analysis, including Optical Mapping, which exploit novel macromolecular phenomena to answer important biological problems. These are built upon a complex mix of principles derived from multiple disciplines including chemistry, genetics, computer science, biochemistry, optics, surface science and micro/nanofabrication. Recently, “Shotgun” Optical Mapping was used to construct whole genome restriction maps of Escherichia coli O157:H7, Deinococcus radiodurans, and Plasmodium falciparum (the major causative agent of malarial disease) without the use of PCR, electrophoresis, or clones. Presently we are applying Shotgun Optical Mapping to the analysis of more complex genomes, including human and rice, as well as of numerous microorganisms, where our mapping efforts are offering new routes to understanding genome plasticity across closely related species. These efforts are also helping to facilitate the ongoing microbial sequencing projects at JGI, in terms of providing means for validation and aids for assembly. With the advent of a high-throughput Optical Mapping System, we are developing novel approaches for human association studies using a new class of genome markers that are designed to encompass SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorph-isms), yet reveal genome variation on a scale not previously discerned for large populations. Current thinking in the field is centered on the use of a limited number of SNPs to leverage the apparent state of linkage disequilibrium, which is indicative of a young species; however, current approaches based on chips or mass spectrometry are pendant on huge numbers of oligonucleotides. This requirement limits analysis to a series of discrete loci and renders such approaches inadequate for the assessment of a broad spectrum of genome variation motifs. This limitation of current systems used for large-scale association studies may neglect discovery of important factors contributing to complex traits. In this regard, haplotyping is emerging as the means to perform detailed analysis of mutations and is expected to play a major role in the emerging field of pharmacogenomics. The Optical Mapping platform is uniquely suited for haplotyping since analysis of single molecules allows for the unambiguous phasing of genetic markers within populations of unrelated individuals. ... gram.shtml

Re: Morgellon's REAL OR NOT

I also suffer from Morgellons. At first I thought it was lice or scabies.. and after countless medication for it and many visits to doctors who didnt know anything, I finally googled my symptons online and found about Morgellons.
I believe it can betransmitted to others because months before I started with the symptons I traveled with a woman out of state and saw doing some strange things. She was picking her face with tweeezers while looking at a magnifying mirror. I asked her about it and she said it was nothing, I told her to stop that... Then I used to watch her scrape down her neck while driving and she was always scratching. Then I started seeing her lesions and would just stare because I didnt know what I was looking at. I then decided after a few trips out of town on business that I couldnt deaal with her, because I knew something had to be wrong.

It is a know fact that the 3 states with the largest reported cases of morgellons are CA, TX, and FL. Well those are also the largest ports of entry for imports from China and other countries. And china has peported morgellons since 1994. And with all the imports coming into our country from China, it could have been brought in all the apparel made in china. Who knows.
I know that after I feel the itching on me, I remove my clothes and am beginning to soak each garment in water for 30 minutes to see what comes up. Well sure enough small fleck, flakes, granules xcome out of the clothing.
The exact specimens no matter what the garment is. I always change the water to make sure so I do not get confused with what I see.
These are the same things I see in the bottom of the tub after taking a shower or bath. I bought magnifying glasses so I could see the tiny specks in the tup... and everytime they are the same. So I KNOW THIS IS REAL.
