Video from Science Song of Week blog!

"Not many songs have been written about the classical problem of morphogenesis (shape change in growing organs). However Flanders and Swann wrote one brilliant and amusing song, called 'Misalliance,' about the growth of twining plants.... (Note that the handedness of the vine is known to be genetic and not related to geography or Coriolis forces.)"
