Tuesday March 16, 2004. One of the more exciting things today was doing laundry. I spent much of the day throwing stuff away.

'Male-killer' bacterium's genome is deciphered
Wolbachia, a parasitic "endosymbiont" species in arthropods, are transmitted through females, and to increase the chances of being passed on from one generation to the next, the bacterium has developed a number of strategies to rid the population of males, or even to convert them to females. Scott O'Neill, Jonathan Eisen, and colleagues have sequenced the complete genome of one strain of Wolbachia pipientis, gaining new insight into the biology and evolution of Wolbachia-host interactions.
