Title: Baldomero Olivera: Cone Snail Peptides
Url: http://www.ibiology.org/ibioseminars/biophysics-chemical-biology/toto...
Creator: Olivera, Baldomero
Publisher: iBioSeminars
Description: Have you ever considered the venom of a snail? Most people think of snakes when they think of venom but overlook snails. There are, however, almost 10,000 species of venomous predatory snails according to this engaging lecture from Professor Baldomero Olivera. In his talk, Professor Olivera explores how these venoms have been used to understand the nervous system and develop new drugs. The lecture is divided into three different sections, and visitors shouldn't miss Part 2 ("How a Fish Hunting Snail Captures Its Prey"). Visitors are also welcome to download the entire lecture and the accompanying slides.
