Postdoc in neural stem cell metabolism – Francis Crick Institute, London

Posted by on October 19th, 2020

  A four year postdoctoral position in the lab of Alex Gould is now available. Previous work in the laboratory, using Drosophila, has shown that the neural stem cell niche plays a critical role in sparing the developing CNS from stresses such as nutrient restriction and hypoxia (PMID: 26451484, PMID: 21816278). We are now looking[…]

Graduate positions in developmental biology at the University of Mississippi

Posted by on October 13th, 2020

Research at UM addresses a broad range of exciting developmental biology questions. What genes regulate the creation of different neuronal cell-types? How do cardiac cells sense and respond to their environment to form a heart? What gene-networks underlie the release of leaves, fruits and seeds? How do plants respond to changes in light and temperature?[…]

The Southwest of the UK – a thriving environment for zebrafish research

Posted by on September 29th, 2020

Meeting report of the SWZM20 The Southwest Zebrafish Meeting 2020 (SWZM20) took place as an online-only meeting organized by the Scholpp lab at the Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter UK, on September 11th 2020. This meeting brought together 90 scientists, mostly from Southwest of the UK, who work with the zebrafish Danio rerio and[…]

Morpholinos with specificity controls please

Posted by on September 16th, 2020

Please, always run specificity controls with Morpholinos. Morpholinos can reveal gene functions that can be concealed by genetic compensation in a mutant, but rigorous specificity controls are essential to determining whether a morphant phenotype is due to knockdown of the oligo target or an unexpected interaction with a different RNA. The Morpholino-in-a-mutant approach described in[…]
