WOODS HOLE, Mass. -- Gertrude Stein never wrote that "a cell is a cell is a cell" when she studied here at the Marine Biological Laboratory a century ago. Nor did the celebrated writer's muse inspire contemplations on squid and clams and sea urchins. But the thousands of scientists who have made the summer migration to this Cape Cod research center since its founding in 1888 have found that cells of sea creatures are, indeed, much the same as those of humans. And they have written reams on those matters of fundamental biological and medical importance.

This week's deals include three specialized offers for trips to three distinct places. Although New Englanders have visited islands around the world, many have never seen two Massachusetts ones: Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands. The Massachusetts Audubon Society will offer day trips there this month. The exploration begins with a 1F-hour boat trip from Woods Hole through Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay along the Elizabeth Islands, with commentary focusing on landmarks, geology, wildlife and the history of the quiet, protected islands.

Harold Ginsberg, 85, a microbiologist who pioneered the study of viruses and infectious diseases, died of pneumonia Feb. 2 in Woods Hole, Mass. Dr. Ginsberg headed the microbiology departments at Columbia University and the University of Pennsylvania, and conducted research for the National Institutes of Health. Colleagues said his work laid the foundation for the field of virology, which is the study of viruses and viral diseases. In the 1950s, Dr. Ginsberg showed that common childhood infections such as atypical pneumonia and pharyngitis were caused by adenoviruses -- which can survive long periods outside a host.

The room is filled with marine life: fiddler crabs and moon snails, dogfish and flounder. There are clams stacked up by the dozen, skates hiding in the sand, and signs that require second looks. "Toadfish infected with lice," one sign says. "Do not touch." But Joe DeGiorgis, 41, walks right past it all. He has come to the Marine Resource Center in Woods Hole, Mass., for one thing and one thing only. "The squid are here," he calls out, pointing to a large oval tank. "My favorite guys." DeGiorgis, smiling, peers inside the tank.
