"Plasma cells are like the turret guns of the immune system that secrete thousands of antibodies per second."
"Plasma cells are like snipers, equipped to take out foreign invaders in the human body while keeping other cells in the body healthy."
"Plasma cells are like antibody factories, producing many copies of a single type of antibody."
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.
