A Chromosome Handle.....
a: Centromere ~
b: a handle to pull chromosomes
What: "A centromere is like a handle by which newly divided chromosomes are pulled to the daughter cells when the cell divides in two. Some cancer cells have abnormal chromosomes with two "handles", resulting in a tug-of-war between the two cells that can break the chromosome."

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.
