Hi all! I am a recently joined member of Tonmo trying to learn more about cephalopod research!

I am an intern at a research company here in Hong Kong. During my internship, one of the tasks that they have given me is to research more about cell lines that can be created from the embryonic stem cells derived from cephalopods. I believe that doing a breeding tank in the lab to collect fertilised eggs would be unfeasible, so have turned to purchasing fresh eggs from somewhere. I was wondering if this is feasible at all?

Thanks for your help in advance!
Julian

Hi Julian, I'm not sure about suppliers in Hong Kong, but hopefully someone here can help; I'll tweet it as well. Sounds like a great project - please keep us posted!
