Beyond morphogen signaling

Posted by on June 25th, 2019

By Dörthe Jülich & Scott Holley   Organizers pattern surrounding tissues via secreted morphogens that specify different cell states as a function of concentration. Wolpert’s French Flag model is commonly used to describe how morphogen gradients specify different fates. Our recent study integrates tail organizer signaling with control of morphogenesis during vertebrate body elongation (Das,[…]

Post Doctoral Associate in the Rieger Lab

Posted by on December 18th, 2018

The Rieger lab is searching for a postdoctoral scholar in the Biology Department at the University of Miami. The postdoctoral scholar will be working on mechanisms of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy using primarily zebrafish as a model system. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a side effect of chemotherapy that affects 60-70% of patients for which currently no[…]

The people behind the papers – Chaitanya Dingare and Virginie Lecaudey

Posted by on December 5th, 2018

This interview, the 52nd in our series, was the first to be published in Development. We’re aiming for one interview per issue, and will continue to put them up here (once the issue has closed).    During teleost fertilisation, sperm fertilises the oocyte through the micropyle, a channel traversing the vitelline membrane at the animal[…]

Scaling the Fish: An L.A. Story

Posted by on October 18th, 2018

Jeff Rasmussen tells the story behind his recent paper from the Sagasti Lab in Dev Cell. This project began as an extension of my earlier postdoc work in Alvaro Sagasti’s lab investigating removal of axon debris following skin injuries in the larval zebrafish [1] and led me into scientific territory that I never anticipated. It[…]
