Posted by on November 3rd, 2010

The annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience kicks off in San Diego at the end of next week, and there are a lot of interesting updates even for people who, like me, are sadly *not* attending. First of all, if you’re planning to go but haven’t yet registered, you can register on site, but[…]

I always travel with my suitcase packed with genes. Airports, planes and trains offer me the only instances where I find two hours solid of work, and they (genes) are then my best companions. However, in my discipline – developmental biology – it seems lately that, by simply analysing more genes, we are not getting[…]
