yorkshireladinlondonish asked: Hi, I just found your blog and I love it. I have my own microscope (I'm a vet student) and was wondering if you'd like me to take any pictures of anything. I have the majority of organs, and can try to find other things. But yes anyway, love the blog!

Hey :)

That’s awesome! That sounds great, feel free to take pictures and submit them to the blog, I love getting submissions.

Book Recommendation:

The Emperor of All Maladies - Siddhartha Mukherjee

I am currently reading this and it is a very well written, informative and intriguing history of cancer and the people who have striven to cure it.

The Nyholm lab needs your support!  We’re launching a crowdfunding campaign to support our research on the Hawaiian Bobtail squid/Vibrio fischeri symbiosis!  If you love cephalopods please share!

These guys sent me an ask about passing on details of their crowdfunding page for some research on these lil’ squid, so if any squid lovers have any spare change send it to these guys.
V. fischeri are also very interesting luminescent bacteria (just not as cute as the squid!)
