Summer Students

We had two fantastic summer students in the lab this summer.  Rhizlane Charai from Clermont-Ferrand in France was 8 months pregnant (her lovely daughter was born 15th Aug, she left the lab 18th July!).  She did a fabulous job of characterising the expression of a couple of proteins in Sox100B mutant embryos and generated a lovely embryonic Sox100B DamID profile.  Thanks Rhizlane and best wishes for the future.

Anna Hakes is an Oxford undergraduate who came on a Genetics Society Genes & Development Summer Studentship to generate a genome wide map of DNaseI accessible  sites in wing imaginal disc chromatin.  A superb effort from Anna, who dissected almost 1000 wing discs during her 8 week stay.  While we didn’t get the profiles, she did an excellent job of troubleshooting a very tricky piece of molecular biology and we are in a much better position to progress with this project.  Thanks to Anna, we hope she enjoys her future work in Oxford.

End of an era – ptII

After 15 years in the lab, first with Michael and then on our Gates project, David Huen is sadly moving on. David was an enormous influence in the lab and helped many a grad student with molecular biology and with computational problems.  He will be sorely missed and he has our thanks for all of his efforts over the years.  Good luck dude.
