Sarah’s paper on comparative Sox binding is now available from BMC Genomics
Sarah’s thesis work on Dichaete and SoxN binding in different Drosophila species is now available on BioRxiv. Reveals the shared binding by both proteins is highly conserved.
Rob White and I are extremely happy to have been awarded a BBSRC research grant to study how Hox transcription factors achieve target specificity. We are currently looking for a Postdoc to join the project who has an enthusiasm for understanding the genome biology of this ancient class of transcription factors (see advert till 18th Jan).
A busy week in the lab, both Katerina and Sarah passed their PhD viva’s – much celebration ensued! Sarah is moving on to a computational biology Postdoc at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research in Basel, so good luck to her. As ever, I am incredibly proud of the students I have hosted in the lab. Well done to both of them.
After almost 6 years, many millions of screened embryos and thousands of images provided by a host of labs, out Protein Trap paper finally sees the light of day in Development. A tremendous effort by all those involved. You can read it in all its (open access) glory here. There is also a fabulous accompanying paper from Bénédicte Sanson’s lab describing in detail the embryonic expression and localisation of the lines.
Thanks to all those involved.
Enrico’s paper on SoxN genomics and a comparative analysis of SoxN and Dichaete binding in mutant backgrounds is now out in Genome Biology. We are very proud of this paper.
