Research technician – functional approaches in annelid regeneration – Whitney Marine Lab (Florida)

Posted by on August 14th, 2019

Research technician position available for a project focused on functional technique development in annelid worms, with a conceptual focus on evo-devo and regeneration biology. This position is part of an NSF-funded project focused on developing approaches to test gene function in post-embryonic (juvenile and adult) stages of several annelid species. The project is a collaboration[…]

From Sequence to Function

Posted by on May 17th, 2013

  It took longer than the human genome, if by only a few years, but it has finally arrived. The sequencing of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) genome reported in Howe et al. is one of two zebrafish publications to recently appear in  the journal Nature.  The second article, Kettleborough et al., makes use of this[…]

WormBase: It’s not just for C. elegans anymore

Posted by on October 29th, 2010

WormBase — wormbase.org — is the central data repository for Caenorhabditis elegans and related nematodes. C. elegans is a well-known system for studying problems in developmental biology, the benefits of which I will quickly rehash here. Its rapid generation time from fertilized egg to gravid adult (3.5 days) and small size (1mM) permit 1000’s of[…]
