Ever shattered an orange using liquid nitrogen? That's how we get DNA out of ticks in our new @FrontiersIn article frontiersin.org/articles/10.33โ€ฆ @UMassMedical @broadinstitute @karlssonlab
We have a lot of ticks. 1000s & 1000s of ticks. People send them to us as part of our #citizenScience #tick disease study ProjectAcari.org. The problem? getting the DNA out.
We want to use high-throughput #DNA sequencing to find out everything we can about each individual #tick - its species, its intestinal #microbiome (they have one too!), and if it carries dangerous pathogens.

I was a practicing atty when I was bitten by a #tick.
I worked as a defense atty & then w/abused women & children.
Despite a severe rash, meningitis, & flaccid paralysis, I wasn't treated for 11 mos.
By then, the E. Chaffeensis, Rickettsia, & #Lyme was in my spinal cord & brain.
