    Hi PZ.

    I was wondering you were familiar with the work of Jan Rainey at Dalhousie University?
    His lab has been characterizing the structural characteristics of proteins that spiders produce in their silk.
    I am wondering if there would be a way you would be able to find some common interests that might spark collaboration? I know very little about the subject, but it always crosses my mind when I read your posts about your work with spiders.
    Anyway, thank you for keeping us all up to date on your work with spiders. My fear of spiders has diminished significantly!
