    I was wondering if anyone could help me with this expirament:
    Take the cells from sunburned skin, and see if you can regenerate
    sunburn cells.

    Turn left at the second light, three houses down on the right. You can't miss it.

    This already happens to some extent.

    UVB rays damage DNA inside the skin cells. This damaged pattern follows into later generations of said cells.

    However, I don't believe they'd be accurately classified as a specific type of sunburn cell as damage to DNA can take place in numerous forms. They're just damaged cells.

    Ohh...... Because i thought that maybe UV rays might create new cells, that in turn damage other cells
