What: "The Sleeping Beauty transposase enzyme plus the transposon is like a truck used to carry the cargo, or specific genes, into the animal. These specific genes could help treat diseases such as cancer."

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.
