More ancient

August 14, 2019

The recent work in Lokiarchaeota taxonomy and growing one of them in the lab is rightfully getting quite a bit of press. When you are young and learning biology, you realize that there are unknowns everywhere, some large intellectual gaps that seem destined to remain mysteries for a long time, partly due to the mysts of history, and partly due to the inherent complexity of biology and the limited tools for unraveling that. It’s quite fun, decades later, to see some of those gaps reduced.

Large mysteries remain, for future explorers!
