Podcasting pandas for Nature

On Monday this week, I popped into Nature's offices in London to talk about the panda genome paper for the podcast. I talk about enzymes for carnivores and herbivores, gut microbes and the interesting umami receptor. When podcast presenter Adam Rutherford posed the usual old anthropocentric stuff about panda sex, I put up my best defense for pandas being brilliant at it, though in getting wound up I fear that perhaps I started to sound a bit panda crazy. It was fun anyway.

  1. I am also the crazy lover of Pandas. Panda is my favorite animal and i really want to make him my pet but, I heard that they live more happy in the forest and near the sea shore.
