Postdoctoral Research Associate Vacancy, Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Edinburgh

Posted by on November 26th, 2013

A post is available on a BBSRC funded project to examine the functional role of Nanog and downstream target genes during primordial germ cell (PGC) development. We have shown that Nanog-null PGCs do not develop fully and this post will determine the residues within Nanog that mediate function, test the possibility that the Nanog target[…]
