Supreme Gene Master - Chapter 4
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The cosmos where the research institute was located did not have a clear distinction between day and night. The cosmos above them was always dim, and only the distant twinkling starlight could bring some light to this place.
After leaving his residence that day, Han Ning was led around the entire research institute by the guard.
Since he wanted to leave, he had to be fully prepared.
After he got tired of walking around, Han Ning went back to rest.
The next morning…
Well, in this universe where there was no black and white, Han Ning could only distinguish between day and night based on his own feelings.
In short, Han Ning remembered what Bai Yu had told him. He was to bring him for the first demonstration today.
The living quarters were about a kilometer away from the laboratory. In the middle, they would pass the main road that led to the door.
Arriving at the side of the main road, Han Ning heard a commotion coming from the entrance.
“Keep your hands steady and send these dimensional beasts to the storage room at the back!”
Following the sound, Han Ning saw a few huge beasts carrying a batch of boxes of various sizes. The boxes seemed to be made out of some kind of transparent glass, and Han Ning could clearly see the corpses of the dimensional beasts inside.
Dimensional beasts were the general name of all life forms in Dimension.
The main mission of the research institute was to extract materials like the genes, bones, and blood. Therefore, many corpses were needed. These corpses were hunted by the Sun family from the wilderness and transported here.
Han Ning ignored the approaching transport team and went to the laboratory.
However, when he passed by the transport team, Han Ning keenly discovered that among the corpses, there seemed to be a dimensional beast that was receiving a ‘treatment’ completely different from other corpses.
The corpse was shaped like an ant, and its entire body emanated a strange and bright blue color.
The other corpses were stored in glass boxes, but this corpse was stored in a spherical container. The surface of the container emitted a metallic luster, and it was obvious that it was of a higher grade than those glass boxes.
Han Ning walked over curiously and stopped a soldier.
He was now an assistant researcher in name, and his status was higher than ordinary soldiers.
When the soldier saw Han Ning, he wanted to scold him, but when he saw the assistant logo on Han Ning’s body, he immediately saluted.
“Good morning, sir!”
Han Ning waved his hand and asked, “What’s in this ball? It looks special?”
The soldier replied, “Sir, this is a Divine Blood Ant. It’s an Origin-rank dimensional beast. There are very few of them in the vicinity, and since they are too small, it’s very difficult to preserve a complete corpse so they are extremely precious.”
Han Ning nodded and left without another word.
Bai Yu had introduced to him before that most of the dimensional beasts in the vicinity were ordinary ones and there were very few of them at the Origin level.
The soldier looked at Han Ning’s back and was slightly puzzled.
“Isn’t this an assistant researcher? Why do I feel like he doesn’t know anything?”
Of course Han Ning didn’t know anything!
He had only just arrived here. Before this, he had never even seen a real dimensional beast!
Of course, Han Ning wouldn’t expose these things. Instead, he would remember the matter of the Divine Blood Ant.
In the future, he would definitely come into contact with genetic evolution. The Divine Blood Ant was a Origin-rank dimensional beast, so its genes were much better than ordinary dimensional beasts. It could be a good alternative.
Han Ning then went to have breakfast.
The research institute’s restaurant was open twenty-four hours a day, and there was a rich variety of food inside. However, most of the food was made from plants and animals in the universe, which made Han Ning a little uncomfortable.
After breakfast, Han Ning walked into the laboratory and found Bai Yu already waiting in the corner.
Seeing Han Ning enter, Bai Yu called out, “You’re here. A new batch of carcasses just arrived, and they’re still warm. I’ll use them to demonstrate for you.”
Han Ning was on the verge of a breakdown.
Why did this guy say that the corpse was still warm as though he was describing a bowl of porridge?
However, Bai Yu did not care about that. The corpse of a dimensional beast had already been placed on the experiment table with all sorts of knives, instruments, and unknown containers around.
When Han Ning arrived, Bai Yu picked up two scalpels and started cutting apart the dimensional beast while explaining to Han Ning.
“Watch carefully. If you want to carry out gene extraction, the first step is to understand the body structure of various dimensional beasts. Today, I will start from the most basic step and demonstrate to you step by step. You must firmly remember everything I have taught you.”
Han Ning immediately agreed.
He had never come into contact with any research knowledge before, but Han Ning knew that he had to learn to accept everything.
Otherwise, no matter how talented he was, the Sun family would not raise an idle person for nothing.
At that time, he would be sent to the wilderness!
Han Ning had no idea how difficult it was to survive in the wild. However, looking at the mangled skin of the beast on the experiment table, it was enough to prove how dangerous the battle between humans and beasts was.
Hence, Han Ning forced himself to memorize every step.
If there was anything he did not understand, Han Ning would consult Bai Yu in time.
However, he did not have any research foundation, so it was very difficult for him to grasp everything.
The steps of the operation were easy to remember, but the usage of the precision instruments and the timing of the drugs to maintain cell activity were like a heavenly book to Han Ning.
Fortunately, Bai Yu was very patient.
He would explain everything that Han Ning didn’t understand over and over again.
Three hours later, the corpse of the dimensional beast was completely dissected, its blood and bones completely separated.
Bai Yu was sweating profusely. It was obvious that his high intensity teaching while working had increased his burden.
After resting for a while, Bai Yu’s expression suddenly turned solemn.
“Look carefully, Han Ning. The next step is the most crucial step in the entire process, it’s time to extract the genes from these life forms!”
As he spoke, Bai Yu connected the two apparatus beside him and placed two electrode-like objects into the separated blood. Then…
Han Ning could not understand what Bai Yu was doing.
Because Han Ning knew nothing about the use of apparatus!
Next, only Bai Yu’s mutterings were left in the laboratory.
“When you extract the genes, you must ensure that there is no deviation in the current output. The transmission rate of the catheter must not change…”
Listening to Bai Yu’s explanation, Han Ning couldn’t understand anything.
However, Bai Yu was completely immersed in the extraction process and could not see Han Ning’s pained face at all. Half an hour later, a small amount of liquid flowed through the catheter and into the test tube beside him, however it was boiling slightly.
At this point in time, Bai Yu no longer spoke. There was only an extremely solemn expression on his face.
When the liquid in the test tube calmed down, Bai Yu wiped the sweat on his forehead and heaved a sigh of relief.
“Done. This is the extracted genes.”
Bai Yu pointed to the rare liquid at the bottom of the test tube.
Han Ning asked softly, “Professor, is the extraction process that difficult?”
