My name is Aidan Eskelund-Hansen. My original project was simply what caused a cat to become black, I then found theories that suggest that the reason they are black is not because of camouflage - but because they have some form of resistance to FIV. My plans for further investigation is to compare two different cat genomes - one black and one not black, and see the similarities between the two and try to prove or disprove this theory. Advice I would give students who are thinking about doing a project? I would tell them that it does not matter if you are disproven or wrong in your study, that’s what science is all about. Even something wrong contributes to science.

Black Cats: MC1R and the FIV Retrovirus
Région:Manitoba First Nations
Ville:Winnipeg, MB
École:Lawrence Sinclair Memorial School
Sommaire:My study is about a theory that black cats possibly have some form of resistance against disease. In that theory, it is possible that humans also have that resistance to disease because of a similarity to the genes responsible for that resistance.
