In our new preprint we characterise neuropeptide signalling in the cnidarian .
Daniel Thiel and Luis Yanez-Guerra screened 64 neuropeptides against 161 G-protein coupled receptors () and found activating peptide ligands for 31 receptors.

Timed my visit perfectly and found myself in the midst of this amazing exhibition! One not only has to stop to admire the science but also the breathtakingly beautiful artwork... Congrats to @friedrich_group and team for bringing PoL to Life! 😉

ah finally learnt the origin of the famous Richardson quote (on turbulence)

"Big whirls have little whirls
that feed on their velocity,
and little whirls have lesser whirls
and so on to viscosity."

“Sometimes the wind moves the flag, and sometimes the flag moves the wind,” is how Michael Shelley concludes his discussion of applied mathematical models to motion and self-organization in cells.

Yup - let's stick a wireless ephys rig on a tiny goldfish and record what happens when it swims into walls... again showing the importance of rhythmic oscillations in neural encoding!

Recording devices implanted in the brains of goldfish have revealed how the animals navigate as they swim.

A centimeter-scale model system for 1D elastoactive structures show that such structures exhibit flagellar motion when pinned at one end, self-snapping when pinned at two ends, and synchronization

My first paper on Burgess Shale research has been published!
We introduce a new species of exceptionally well-preserved polychaete (bristle worm), Ursactis comosa, from the Burgess Shale (Wuliuan Stage).

We're recruiting 8 new group leaders!! Only requirement is that you must be enthusiastic about interdisciplinary research! Come and be my colleague 😊

Watson and Crick were widely believed to have hit on the structure of DNA after stealing data from Rosalind Franklin – but newly-discovered documents suggest a different account of this discovery:

It can 'feed' on sunlight; gives birth to live, pregnant clone-babies & needs to be bacterially infected to survive.
