法国巴黎生命调查研究所邵峰实验室的石建金同学这二日在第三届iBiology Young


For the past few years, I’ve been spending my summers in the marine
biological laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. And there, what I’ve
been doing is essentially renting a boat. What I would like to do is ask
you to come on a boat ride with me tonight.

Mysterious New Whale Species Discovered in Alaska

So, we ride off from Eel Pond into Vineyard Sound, right off the coast
of Martha’s Vineyard, equipped with a drone to identify potential spots
from which to peer into the Atlantic. Earlier, I was going to say into
the depths of the Atlantic, but we don’t have to go too deep to reach
the unknown. Here, barely two miles away from what is arguably the
greatest marine biology lab in the world, we lower a simple plankton net
into the water and bring up to the surface things that humanity rarely
pays any attention to, and oftentimes has never seen before.

The Young Scientist Seminars is a collaboration between the Albert and
Mary Lasker Foundation, the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science
at Stony Brook University, and iBiology. The Young Scientist Seminars is
a new video series featuring talented PhD students and postdocs giving
talks about their research and discoveries. From studying the genetic
origins of melanoma to tracking leopard shark behavior off the
California coast, these young scientists tell compelling research
stories using narrative, analogies, and visuals. The five speakers were
selected from a large pool of accomplished scientists from around the
world in a competition held earlier this year. In preparation for
recording their talks, they attended a science communication workshop at
the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook
University. They incorporated what they learned from the workshop into
their video presentations.


Here’s one of the organisms that we caught in our net. This is a
jellyfish. But look closely, and living inside of this animal is another
organism that is very likely entirely new to science. A complete new
species. Or how about this other transparent beauty with a beating
heart, asexually growing on top of its head, progeny that will move on
to reproduce sexually. Let me say that again: this animal is growing
asexually on top of its head, progeny that is going to reproduce
sexually in the next generation. A weird jellyfish? Not quite. This is
an ascidian. This is a group of animals that now we know we share
extensive genomic ancestry with, and it is perhaps the closest
invertebrate species to our own. Meet your cousin, Thalia democratica.

according to the British “Daily Mail” August 12, reports, near the coast
of Angola recently discovered jellyfish like creatures of the deep,
dubbed the “Flying Spaghetti Monster” (Flying Spaghetti Monster).

iBiology’s mission is to convey, in the form of open-access free videos,
the excitement of modern biology and the process by which scientific
discoveries are made. Our aim is to let you meet the leading scientists
in biology, so that you can find out how they think about scientific
questions and conduct their research, and can get a sense of their
personalities, opinions, and perspectives. We also seek to support
educators who want to incorporate materials that illustrate the process
and practice of science into their curriculum. This project is made
possible by the good will of many biologists who are committed to making
their work broadly accessible and to conveying the excitement of biology
to a worldwide audience. iBiology.org (formerly ibioseminars.org and
ibiomagazine.org) was developed to bring the best biology to people
throughout the world for free. Started in 2006 by University of
California, San Francisco and Howard Hughes Medical Institute
investigator, Professor Ron Vale, iBiology has grown to include over 300
seminars and short talks by the world’s leading scientists. Our
collection includes talks by many Nobel Laureates and members of the
United States National Academy of Sciences. In 2013, we released our
first full-length course in Light Microscopy and expanded the
educational resources we offer. iBiology is funded by the National
Science Foundation and the National Institute of General Medical
Sciences. iBiology is supported by the American Society for Cell
Biology, the University of California, San Francisco, and the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute, each of which has provided essential
resources, funding, and in-kind services to iBiology since the project
was started.



The creature was found in the 1219 meter deep sea of the Atlantic, the
British Petroleum Corporation , the oil rig, ROV, and its body has
numerous appendages. Staff on the end is what is very confused, and
finally named flying noodles monster”. Now, the video has been sent to
the National Marine Research Center in Southampton, UK, for more
scientific recognition.

I’m pretty sure you didn’t save a spot at your last family reunion for
Thalia, but let me tell you, these animals are profoundly related to us
in ways that we’re just beginning to understand. So, next time you hear
anybody derisively telling you that this type of research is a simple
fishing expedition, I hope that you’ll remember the trip that we just

The researchers think, the creature is actually a mesh tube jellyfish
creatures, Bathyphysa conifera. The National Center for ocean research
has collaborated with offshore Oil Natural Gas Corp to collect similar
video from ROV. The family, which is a family of corals and jellyfish,
is not a single organism, but a combination of thousands of creatures.


Like many good mysteries, this one started with a corpse, but the body
in question was 24 feet (7.3 meters) long.

Today, many of the biological sciences only see value in studying deeper
what we already know — in mapping already-discovered continents. But
some of us are much more interested in the unknown. We want to discover
completely new continents, and gaze at magnificent vistas of ignorance.
We crave the experience of being completely baffled by something we’ve
never seen before. And yes, I agree there’s a lot of little ego
satisfaction in being able to say, “Hey, I was the first one to discover
that.” But this is not a self-aggrandizing enterprise, because in this
type of discovery research, if you don’t feel like a complete idiot most
of the time, you’re just not sciencing hard enough.

The remains floated ashore in June of 2014, in the Pribilof Islands
community of St. George, a tiny oasis of rock and grass in the middle of
Alaska’s Bering Sea. A young biology teacher spotted the carcass
half-buried in sand on a desolate windswept beach. He alerted a former
fur seal researcher who presumed, at first, that she knew what they’d
found: a Baird’s beaked whale, a large, gray, deep-diving creature that
occasionally washes in dead with the tide.



But a closer examination later showed that the flesh was too dark, the
dorsal fin too big and floppy. The animal was too short to be an adult,
but its teeth were worn and yellowed with age.

So every summer I bring onto the deck of this little boat of ours more
and more things that we know very little about. I would like tonight to
tell you a story about life that rarely gets told in an environment like
this. From the vantage point of our 21st-century biological
laboratories, we have begun to illuminate many mysteries of life with
knowledge. We sense that after centuries of scientific research, we’re
beginning to make significant inroads into understanding some of the
most fundamental principles of life.
