    About This Project

    The vampire bat, with its big eyes and razor sharp incisors, is one of neotropic’s most iconic animals. A protein from its saliva, Draculin, acts as an anticoagulant and may one day be used as treatment for blood clots that starve the brain of oxygen during a stroke. With a vampire genome, we are now in an excellent position to understand and separate fact and fantasy in the evolution of vampires by sequencing and analyzing vampire RNA during development.

    Blast off!
