From SNPs to starlings: Avian Model Systems 2014, 5th-8th March

Posted by on March 17th, 2014

Deep snow failed to chill the atmosphere at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories as the most diverse Avian Model Systems meeting yet took place. The model organisms involved included transgenic quail and zebra finches, canaries, and even barn owls and the American white-throated sparrow, alongside the more prosaic chicken.

Dicty World Race – 2014

Posted by on March 1st, 2014

The first ever World Dicty Race  will require cells to navigate a complex microfluidic maze to reach a pool of chemoattractant at the finish line.  Diffusion of the chemoattractant will create a spatial gradient to guide cells along the shortest path to the finish line. The challenge is to engineer Dicty or HL60 cells to […]
