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[…]
Get lost in the Valley of Hybridisation in the Genetics Society’s medal-winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Everyone knows that humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. But back in the 1930s, the correct answer would have been 24. So what happened?
In this episode of Genetics Unzipped we ask, what would have happened if Darwin had read Mendel? And what if they’d been on Twitter?
Job Title: Post-doctoral fellow. Position is currently recruiting. Minimum of 2-year commitment is required. Job Description The Liao Laboratory at the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in affiliation with the Division of Plastic Surgery and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute is seeking a highly motivated research fellow interested in craniofacial developmental biology[…]
In this episode from our series exploring 100 ideas in genetics, we’re telling the often-overlooked stories of four women who helped to shape the science of life: Esther Lederberg, Harriet Creighton, Tsuneko Okazaki and Martha Chase.
In this episode of Genetics Unzipped we have a very special interview with leading geneticist Mary-Claire King.
