Episode 14: The Repellent DEET and Ticks

Episode 14: The Repellent DEET and Ticks

Episode 14:  Insects have studied for many years, but it wasn’t until this year that we began to understand why DEET repels ticks. In the process we find that ticks have a different system of smelling than both humans and insects.

The journal article for this episode can be found here. 

In this video that talk about "mutated cells" and "normal cells" but in the case of the paper we discussed these would be "front leg cells" and "rear-most leg cells".
