PhD position available: The role of microRNAs in neural crest development

Posted by on November 20th, 2012

SCHOOL OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES, UNIVERSITY OF EAST ANGLIA   PhD POSITION AVAILABLE   The role of microRNAs in neural crest development   MicroRNAs (miR) are short, non-coding RNAs around 22 nucleotides long. They block gene expression either by translational repression or by causing the degradation of the mRNAs they bind to. They are involved in[…]

Post-doctoral position in muscle-type specific genomic approaches

Posted by on November 10th, 2012

Identifying gene expression signatures that underlay diversification of muscle cells using cell type specific genomic approaches in Drosophila   Muscle network in Drosophila embryos represents an attractive system for studying cell diversification. Each muscle displays a specific size, location, attachment points and innervation. Several studies including those of our group (Junion et al., 2007, Bataillé[…]
