Workshop “Transgenerational Epigenetic Inheritance”

Posted by on November 2nd, 2015

At the beginning of October 2015, the workshop “Transgenerational Epigenetic Inheritance” organized by Edith Heard, Ruth Lehmann and the Company of Biologists took place in Wiston House, West Sussex, United Kingdom. 20 invited speakers, all leading experts in the field, presented their thoughts about transgenerational epigenetic inheritance and their research towards describing and understanding these[…]

Advocating FOR grads and postdocs: the Future of Research symposium

Posted by on August 27th, 2014

You may have noticed a recent trend in the perception of the graduate and postdoctoral experience, be it in the state of our mental health; or perceived career goal of “academia-or-bust”; or maybe you’re just keeping your pulse on leading US academics warning of the imminent dangers of a flawed biomedical research system or the[…]

The Company of Biologists Workshop: From Stem Cells to Human Development

Posted by on February 18th, 2014

As you may know, the Company of Biologists runs a fantastic series of small Workshops on diverse topics across the life sciences (more details on our website). I’m excited to announce that the latest in this series, “From Stem Cells to Human Development”, is now open for registration. The Workshop is being organised by our[…]

Xenopus Bioinformatics Workshop

Posted by on February 5th, 2014

This 7 day workshop is intended for wet lab researchers who want, at least, to extend their understanding of computational analysis tools and methods, but will probably also want to acquire grounded computational skills to enable them to work independently. They may be PIs, post docs or PhD students, but are less likely to be[…]

ESF QuanTissue Workshop

Posted by on July 22nd, 2013

The 8th European zebrafish meeting first started with the “ESF QuanTissue” workshop, a 4 hour session where speakers showed current research about basic mechanisms that regulate cellular behavior during morphogenetic processes. Talks were given by outstanding scientists studying in detail mechanistic behind epiboly, rhombomeres and MHB formation, proneuromast assembly, somitogenesis, and tracheal morphogenesis. In the[…]

“Working with Zebrafish Genome Resources” Workshop during the 8th European Zebrafish Meeting

Posted by on July 18th, 2013

This was my first time in lovely Barcelona. I travelled from London the day before the zebrafish meeting kicked-off (in order to be well rested and alert for all the talks and posters!). I attended the “Working with Zebrafish Genome Resources” workshop and I have to say it was absolutely helpful for any scientist working[…]

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[…]
