@Alon, this is Cindy. I represent the Experiment editorial staff. We are responsible for the content in the Weekly Digest. We made a mistake when rewriting the title as "X-rays may reveal the female mosquitos evolved a proboscis from eating nectar from flowers". I apologize for our staff publishing incorrect information. We are looking into our editorial process and how we can improve so that our Weekly Digest always accurately communicates the work of the scientists on the Experiment platform. If there are other ways in which you think the Experiment Team can do better, please reach out directly at We are sorry! We will do better.
