Episode Description

This week on The Method Section, Tom takes a look at the first-ever multi-cellular organism that has been discovered that doesn’t need oxygen to survive. Henneguya salminicola is a Myxozoan parasite of salmon that has no mitochondria or aerobic resipiratory pathway. This is a huge discovery that could start a paradigm shift in how we look at organisms as we know it today. Join Tom as he takes a look at the paper and breaks it down for you!
