MEFGL researchers scoop cover of Science!

Wolfgang W├╝ster and several MEFGL Masters students were among the authors of an international study published in Science, and featured on a striking front cover of the Magazine!
The study showed that three lineages of spitting cobras evolved the same pain-inducing modifications to their venom independently, and that the origin of these modifications coincided with the arrival of the first early humans in Africa and Asia.
