    Always fun to see TONMO well represented when cephs are the topic. I have to admit I speak a bit territorially when a family member passes a newsy bit my way. I have to point out, "my people" to them :oops:

    I was a bit confused. I thought Kat and the NZ team did part of the research but I think I now understand that they were interviewed to explain a bit about the paper since a NZ squid was used for the data. The credits only show a reference to work done by Kat and Steve (with Dr Ku as a primary author). It only reduces the cool factor a little though :grin:

    Yeah, we weren't involved in this one other than probably having provided tissue at some stage. In fact, I hadn't even seen the paper yet (don't think it had been publicly released at the time) so they had to send me a copy so I could talk about it! :oops:
