Weiner, assistant professor of biology at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Department of Biology Interface, writing on the topic of cell adhesion.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
