This UC Berkeley-led study is the first to find genetic evidence for long-distance dispersal of disease-carrying snails:
"Each snail can contaminate the water that people work, swim or wash in with many parasites — so movement of just one snail to a new area could introduce the disease in a previously healthy population."
"The whole reason to do cosmology is because anything you do in cosmology is mind-boggling. You have to get a kick out of the idea that you’re going to be asking questions about something that the brain is just not very well designed to handle.” #BerkeleyNobel #BerkeleyResearch
