And they said Descriptive Biology was dead….

14 January 2009

Definitely my favorite paper title of the week:

The insect nephrocyte is a podocyte-like cell with a filtration slit diaphragm

(Weavers et al. 2009 Nature 457: 322-326).

It’s like I’ve always said…we’ve still got a lot to learn about arthropod excretion.

    Hm, blogging and pissing at the same time seems like a bad idea.
