Re: Bloom Time Shift

You have just made my mentor as a scientist extremely happy.  He lead each
of his students into situations where we had to say "Uh, I didn't do a
control..." so that we learn the value of a control.  I fell into the trap
many times more than once --- I'm good at "Just do it".  I learned the hard
way to "do it" with controls, both positive and negative where possible. 
Unpublishable data does not make an academic scientist happy.

In your experiment, there is no possible positive control, since you don't
know what will happen.  The negative control should be adequate.

Sorry for the scientific pedantry.  My training is showing through.
