Genetics Unzipped podcast – 005 – Vegetable soup

Posted by on January 31st, 2019

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney is exploring some more of the leading 100 ideas in genetics. She’s been digging around in the genetic vegetable patch in search of flavourful GM tomatoes, chunky onion genomes and Mendelian peas. Available on Apple podcasts/iTunes, Spotify and all good podcast apps, and online at GeneticsUnzipped.com If you[…]

Genetics Unzipped – 004 – Witness the fitness

Posted by on January 17th, 2019

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney is reporting back from the Genetics Society’s Autumn meeting – Genotype to Phenotype to Fitness – asking whether street smart city-dwelling birds are genetically different from their country bumpkin relatives, how butterflies got their brightly patterned wings, and if today’s genetic research would have blown Darwin’s mind.[…]

Postdoctoral Positions — Neural crest stem cells, pigment pattern, adult form

Posted by on June 1st, 2018

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Parichy lab at University of Virginia. The lab studies development using zebrafish and related species. Current emphases include hormonal control over post-embryonic neural crest stem cells, plasticity in cell state, evolution of novel cell types, and mechanisms of pattern formation and cell–cell communication within zebrafish and across Danio species.[…]

Postdoctoral Positions – RNA pathways in development and disease – NIH/NCI

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We have open postdoctoral positions in our lab. We are looking for researchers interested in understanding the mechanisms through which non-coding RNAs and RNA metabolic pathways regulate gene expression in mammals and how these mechanisms impact animal development and disease. Our lab uses a combination of mouse models and genetic tools together with biochemical and[…]

Postdoctoral Fellow in Neurodevelopment

Posted by on January 18th, 2018

Applications are invited from highly motivated individuals who are interested in fundamental mechanisms of neuronal migration and axon guidance. The main focus of our research is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the development of neural circuits using the embryonic spinal cord as a model system (http://www.ucmm.umu.se/english/research/sara-wilson/). The fellowship is funded for two[…]

The Tails of Fate

Posted by on January 18th, 2018

The epic journey of embryogenesis begins with a set of maternal instructions. These instructions are in the form of transcribed mRNA, some even translated into proteins and ready for action. However, many of the critical maternal mRNAs are inactive and must be delivered to the right cell and activated at the right time to encode[…]
