...No, this not the same thing as "Chia Pet", despite what Google would have you believe.

Enter "ChIA-PET" into the Google search bar and the first two pages are filled with nothing but entries related to the familiar terracotta figurines used to sprout chia.

Search Google Images and you come up with a lot of images like this...

Not even close. No cigar and no Richard Simmons work-out video for Google.

So what the hell is ChIA-PET, you ask.

[b]ChIA-PET[/b] (or ChIA-PETS) is an acronym for Chromatin Interaction Analysis by Paired-End Tag Sequencing, which is [i]"a technique that incorporates chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-based enrichment, chromatin proximity ligation, Paired-End Tags, and High-throughput sequencing to determine de novo long-range chromatin interactions genome-wide". [/i]

Fascinating stuff, eh? Ch-Ch-Ch-ChIA!

Also, Happy May Day.

[@121363,Rutterman] Nice
Hmmm...that’s interesting! I love how the acronym is akin to a building block of the computer. So easy to memorize and relate, if you’re in the field of microbiology or genetics. 👌

This is a truly fascinating science...and the breakthroughs we’ve seen in gene technology are mind blowing...yet it’s only the beginning of manmade miracles.

Isn’t that vaccine AstraZeneca based on something similar? 🤔
🤩 That’s actually pretty cute sounding...☺️[@121363,Rutterman]

OH [b]yes[/b], fascinating! 🥴

Seriously though, I did learn something...even though I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to even [i]repeat[/i] just what CHIA-PET is an acronym for.
Rutterman · 41-45, M
[@910977,Piper] Lol. I thought so too. 🤪 😄

Same for me. I can barely understand what it's about.
Maybe we need to bring back the Chia Pets 😂
Rutterman · 41-45, M
[@868864,HannahSky] Oh, but they still make them.

How'd you like a Baby Yoda Chia Pet? 😀
