  • Happy birthday to German biologist, philosopher, and artist Ernst Haeckel. In addition to describing and naming thousands of new species Haeckel was behind some of history’s most impressive meetings of science and art, a body of imagery which reached its zenith in his Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature) published in 1904. See more of his stunning images, and read about his unique idea of “monism” which lies behind them, in our essay by Dr Mario A. Di Gregorio (click link in bio and search "Haeckel") -- and we've also more than 50 of his images available as prints in our inline shop (click link in bio and go to shop).⠀

  • Discovery and Characterization of Cas9 Inhibitors Disseminated across Seven Bacterial Phyla. Scientists developed a high-throughput approach to screen for type II-A CRISPR-Cas inhibitors in metagenomic libraries based on their functional activity rather than sequence homology or genetic context. This approach led to the discovery of four novel anti-CRISPR proteins, homologs of which are widely distributed across seven bacterial phyla. doi.org/10.1016/j.chom.2019.01.003

  • I was reminded earlier of just how much I love this hoop I stitched a while back, so I thought it's a good time to share it with you all and maybe start thinking of other egg and sperm designs to work on! I'll keep the sperm style the same but there's a lot of fun to be had coming up with new ways to depict the egg!

  • I'll be at MAX 2019: A Space Festival (from @mediaartxplor) this May to talk about Ask an Astrobiologist for SAGANet!

If you're out that way, be sure to come chat about life, space, exoplanets, Europa, and more cool stuff with me!

  • Sex and violence pair well. I assumed that this was mostly pop culture glorifying masculinity through association with aggression and sex… but there’s apparently a tight biological link. Multiple regions in the brain have now been identified as containing cells specific for behaviors related to aggression or mating. Studied mostly in male mice (because mouse brain are pretty similar to human brains), manipulations of vomeronasal organ, amygdala, and hypothalamus can alter mating and aggressive behaviors [1]. As expected, these regions all connect to each other. This makes intuitive sense, because mating and aggressive behaviors are both important social behaviors strongly tried to pheromones in other mammals. ⁣

Anyway, I was surprised to see just how convoluted these two social behaviors are in our head. Maybe affection and anger really is on the opposite ends of the same spectrum. ⁣

  • Pseudozyma aphidis you're so beautiful! Pseudozyma species are yeast-like organisms classified in the Ustilaginales. Here my guys are growing on a chemically defined media with different concentrations of sodium tellurite. These fungi (yeah they belong to the fungus kingdom) are able to reduce tellurite (a very toxic metalloid oxyanion) in tellurium nanoparticles (less toxic). Due to the nanoparticles, the colour of the organism goes black (control Pseudozyma is white). For the size: the blue line measures 0.5 cm. These pics have been taken after a month of incubation.  Fungi are amazing!

  • I can FINALLY share this hoop! @stephaniekoebele commissioned this for the lovely @cheburashka24 for being an absolutely bad ass and finishing her PhD! I’m so incredibly happy I was able to make a super special gift for Alesia. I hope you’re totally rocking your new post doc life!
