OK --- dipping into the gutter here a bit. But everyone must check out the cover of Nature this week. The issue is on the genetics of sex, and I'll be damned if that phycomyces colony on the cover (the one in the back) does not look like some sort of male sexual organ.
I do not know where to go with this. It has to be on purpose right? Is this what they refer to in the cover caption as a "pseudo-sexual" structure?
And I know I am probably not supposed to say this as an obsessed supporter of Open Access publishing but I dream of the day Nature becomes a fully OA journal. I still think PLoS Biology is a better journal, but Nature definitely has some good stuff there.
