    This must be a first. I can barely believe that squidblog has beaten TONMO to this exciting piece of squid news:

    Scientists at the MBL (Marine Biological Laboratory) have recently launched the Squid Genome Project, a scientific collaboration to identify the genes of the long-finned squid—information they say will aid in the complex process of researching debilitating neurological diseases, including Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, and Alzheimer’s disease.​

    For more info see the press release, and maybe have a look at my squidblog entry.

    I do believe that you also scooped TONMO on the sensational Keira Knightley vs. Giant Squid story.

    Nice work on catching the squid genome item.

    Cheers,

    Whoop.

    Well, you've still got the Keira Knightley scoop, dub_doctor.
