Jonathan Eisen points out a new fun tool at EMBL's site. With this phylogenetics visualizing tool, people can zoom in and out to see different branches of the tree of life from anywhere with an Internet connection -- bringing Eisen to remark that Peer Bork seems to be "trying to become the Google of phylogenetics." Down in the comment section, Carl Zimmer says to check out the representative person on the human branch of the tree -- and it's not Venter nor Watson, but the highly esteemed Borat.
Evidently Borat is More Popular than Either Watson or Venter
