Friday Squid Blogging: Multiple Organisms Co-Evolving in a Single Squid
Interesting research on the genomic evolution of the Hawaiian bobtail squid: “These analyses represent the first genomic insights into the evolution of multiple symbiotic organs within a single animal host.”
From a news article:
Now, Foster and an international team of researchers have mapped the genome of a Hawaiian bobtail squid, creating a new tool to explore these questions. By parsing the squid’s genome, the team has already discovered that the evolution of its light organ followed a completely different pathway than that of a second symbiotic organ, which supports reproduction.
As usual, you can also use this squid post to talk about the security stories in the news that I haven’t covered.
