Data manipulation? It’s normal(ization)!

Posted by on June 25th, 2019

In a previous blog, I have highlighted several ways to visualize the cell-to-cell heterogeneity from time-lapse imaging data. However, I have ignored that data is often rescaled in a way that reduces variability. For time-lapse imaging data, it is common to set the initial fluorescence intensity to 1 (or 100%). As a consequence, any changes[…]

A Madrid-Washington synergy for mouse embryo live-imaging

Posted by on April 23rd, 2019

One of the things I learned during my stay in another lab is that you can’t succeed completely by yourself. You can try, sure, but a relevant unanswered question in biology is a hard nut to crack. It usually takes a multidisciplinary approach and great ideas coming from more than one brain. Collaborations are key[…]

Postdoctoral Positions — Neural crest stem cells, pigment pattern, adult form

Posted by on June 1st, 2018

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Parichy lab at University of Virginia. The lab studies development using zebrafish and related species. Current emphases include hormonal control over post-embryonic neural crest stem cells, plasticity in cell state, evolution of novel cell types, and mechanisms of pattern formation and cell–cell communication within zebrafish and across Danio species.[…]
