Episode 19 of 400 episodes

Today's studio guest was doctoral student Jacqueline Burgess from La Trobe University. Jacqueline has identified odour molecules produced by intestinal worms in sheep.

Other stories were: the evolution of verbs, counting animals not as simple as it sounds, sequencing the Pinot Noir genome, and Japan's Kaguya spacecraft heads to the Moon.
