furrows formed by just my hand
abundance is mine

(What is FISH? – Fluorescence In Situ Hybridisation detects and localises DNA sequences using fluorescently labelled complimentary DNA probes. Why? In cytogenetic laboratories to observe, abnormalities in chromosomes which may be the cause of cancers or possible abnormalities in future offspring. In the pic above, they are human chromosomes fluorescing. The biggies are inter-phase cells)
