a: single-nucleotide polymorphism ~
b: global positioning system for mouse genetics
"Basically, explains TSRI Professor Steve Kay, the new tool is like a global positioning system for mouse genetics-a set of coordinates that scientists can use to "navigate" the genome the same way that a sailboat pilot uses a constellation of GPS satellites to navigate the Pacific Ocean."

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.
