Site Design

   This is a non-commercial, not-for-profit site. All links to other sites do not make money for the site. The dot.com ending in zona-pellucida.com stems from a belief that the business of America should be its children not business as President Coolidge asserted and that a good company, a dot.com, should be an enterprise that fosters children.
