A day in the life of a Capitella teleta lab

Posted by on July 10th, 2018

It’s undoubtedly the middle of summer here in Saint Augustine, Florida. Daily temperatures are soaring into the 90s, and we’re grateful if the humidity dips below 70%. Thankfully, the Seaver lab doesn’t have to contend with much of this heat. Instead, our members are inside, comfortable though busier than ever, mentoring summer interns, piloting new[…]

All beauty must die

Posted by on July 9th, 2018

Anna Daneva, Zhen Gao and Moritz Nowack tell the story behind their recent paper in Nature Plants   The transience of flowers is proverbial. Degeneration of flowers is elicited after successful pollination by the onset of seed and fruit development. However, also unpollinated flowers do not last forever – on the contrary, the life span[…]

C. elegans Development, Cell Biology and Gene Expression and 2018 European Worm Meeting report

Posted by on July 9th, 2018

I recently attended the biennial Development, Cell Biology and Gene Expression C. elegans Meeting, this time in combination with the 2018 European Worm Meeting, in Barcelona. C. elegans meetings are always pretty special, defined more than anything else by the strong sense of community between researchers, or, as well like to call ourselves, ‘Worm People’.[…]

Stem cell makes its own niche: the story behind the paper

Posted by on July 7th, 2018

In our recent paper published in Nature, we unravel a new mechanism of an extracellular matrix protein secreted by muscle satellite (stem) cells, thereby playing the unusual role of acting as a signaling molecule to maintain the stem cell population. Here, I share the story behind this discovery and discuss the questions related to niche[…]
