Often mistaken for seaweed, the brown bryozoan Bugula neritina clings to boat hulls, docks, and pilings to eventually crowd out other lifeforms. Inside this invasive species, however, lies a natural chemical known as bryostatin, which an LSU research team discovered can be used to control the movement of white blood cells—a gamechanger for successful organ transplantation.
