Delighted that our work with the Fitch lab () and has finally borne fruit. Using forward genetics (yay!) we identified an lncRNA, lep-5, that acts in the heterochronic pathway to promote the larval-to-adult transition.

OK everyone, preparations are in full speed here in Ann Arbor, for the meeting! Here is the posters' gallery--empty :) Keep it in mind, it will be full of worms on Saturday! See you soon :)

Obviously, Brenner 1974 paper establishing C. elegans as a model organism, sketching the genetic map and describing the first mutants had an enormous impact on modern Biology.

Worms are mourning in the lab today... here at the we have so many “signs” of , father & my number 1 hero scientist. Thank you legend you’ve contributed to some of the most groundbreaking achievements in biology.

“I would like to tame a small metazoan organism to study development directly” wrote Sydney Brenner in 1963. 11 years later he reported in his first screens. Here's Bob Goldstein on that classic, trailblazing paper.

Not only did Sydney Brenner establish C. elegans as model organism, he was part of the mRNA discovery and the cracking of the genetic code, among other things. One of the most brilliant scientists in the history of Biology. What a legacy!

As person, gene names never cease to amaze me. Today, at the conference on drosophila as a cancer model, I've heard about "Pathetic", which encodes a amino acids transporter, "Pathetic functions", and the "Pathetic expression pattern".

Today we enjoyed one of the best talks of the season at by who gave an inspiring talk on two distintc topics, and . As reward we honored him with a visit to our worm room to see under the stereomicroscope 😝 Thanks for your time!
