Cancer and the devil, an update

>> Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Any regulars may remember a post I wrote last month about the infectious cancer that's spreading through the Tasmanian devil population. Earlier this week, ERV wrote about the devils' cancer in terms of immunology--ERV's speciality--and what the devils' lack of biodiversity means from a technical standpoint. It's worth a read if you're interested in such things: as usual, ERV does a boffo job of explaining molecular biology in simple terms. Have a look when you have a few minutes.

I read about this a while back -SciAm I think, but it could have been either The Smithsonian or Nature, I don't remember.

It's a strange situation, I'll go read ERV article, sounds interesting. Thanks.
