I'm not sure if this is a "doable" project, but I thought I'd run it by 
some experts. What i want to do is take a poisonous plant like poison ivy 
and take the cells that make the plant poisonous, then replant one of the 
nodes and see if it will still produce the poison(if it's part of the 
plant's process). Thanks for your help.
