Faculty in the CRM and these departments[…]
We’re digging into some of the mysteries around what’s often seen as the ultimate genetic disease: cancer.
We look back over the first 20 episodes of Genetics Unzipped to select some of our favourite bits that you might have missed.
As a first-year graduate student, I had the good fortune of accompanying Dr. Pierre Rasmont (U. Mons, Belgium) and his lab group on an expedition to collect bumble bees in Turkey. At our first stop onto the dry but flower-rich volcanic lands, we each dispersed to collect bees. At the time I was working to[…]
Take a trip in a genetic time machine, discovering the origins of ancient human populations and exploring the future of personal genome sequencing.
The Department of the Director Prof Miltos Tsiantis is looking for early stage researchers to employ at the Ph.D. and Post Doc level in the areas of plant development, morphogenesis and evolution (http://www.mpipz.mpg.de/226344/tsiantis-dpt). Ph. D. candidates should have an M. Sc in appropriate discipline (Plant biology, Developmental biology, Computer Science, Genetics, Biochemistry, Statistical, Evolutionary or[…]
We’re exploring the dark heart of the genome, untying nature’s shoelaces, and looking back at the discovery of RNA splicing.
Roles of metabolism in the developmental origins of health and longevity A postdoctoral research position funded by the Wellcome Trust is available in the laboratory of Dr. Alex Gould at the Francis Crick Institute in London. The lab works on the mechanisms by which dietary nutrients during development can have profound long-term effects upon adult[…]
