Genetics Unzipped podcast – Supermodels of science

Posted by on February 28th, 2019

 In this episode from our series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re entering the glamorous world of modelling, meeting the supermodels… of science. We’re taking a look at some of the field’s top models – the eclectic collection of organisms that have been put to work in the lab to reveal the secrets of biology.[…]

Sweetening with a pinch of salt: maximized Cas9 efficiency in zebrafish

Posted by on June 14th, 2016

  Alexa Burger, Mosimann lab, Institute of Molecular Life Sciences, University of Zürich, Switzerland. When I first heard about the “new” genome editing method in early 2013 called CRISPR-Cas9, I thought: “Never ever again will I work with targeted nucleases!” Now it’s mid-2016, we published our approaches to maximize Cas9 effectiveness in zebrafish with Development[…]

“Smells Like Development” – The 73rd Society for Developmental Biology Meeting

Posted by on September 30th, 2014

Hosted in beautiful Seattle, the Society for Developmental Biology (SDB) held its 73rd Annual Meeting on the University of Washington campus in (mostly) sunny July. Here researchers from around the world working on different developmental processes and models come together to share their results and learn about advances in the field. SDB is quite generous[…]

Postdoc position
