Fish embryos? What about crackers!!!! I wanted crackers!!!! And I get Zebrafish!
The interview was actually very interesting, in which PZ discussed homologous structures in the mouse and the bat, in reference to his recent article in Seed magazine.
Well, PZ did compare himself to a supermodel. Unfavorably.
Otherwise, Myers was pretty much sticking with the Darwin story about evolution. Small incremental changes and all that. A very interesting and informative interview.
PZ revealed that his next Seed Magazine article will be on choanoflagellates. This is about the origins of multicellular life. When he talked about the proteins that evolved in choanoflagellates to stick them together (like cells in a multicellular organism stick together) the interviewer, Lynn Felman commented: “Oh, like everything is connected to everything else” (referring to the analogous structure).
I must say a half hour of science first thing in the morning on a Sunday is a lot better than … I dunno … crackers.
OK, off to Q.Cumbers.
