World Cup 2014 – Flies and Football

A disclaimer to start with: I am not a football fan, at all. I just follow main events like the European and World cups because of the cheerful atmosphere of pubs where people watch the games.

And even more so when they asked me to contribute by writing a few posts for them. God knows I love Drosophila gene names enough to take part in anything even remotely related to their originality and wittiness. More on it here. So I wrote a few posts, wish can be found on there website:
