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,
Clem
