Using Zebrafish for Rapid Genetic Analysis

The introduction of engineered site-specific DNA endonucleases has brought precise genome editing in many model organisms into the realm of possibility. Thanks to precise and efficient genome editing in zebrafish using the CRISPR/Cas9 system, scientists at NemaMetrix are using zebrafish for rapid genetic analysis. Utilizing morphants and crispants you can…

C. elegans showing its weight in neuro-toxicology research

Researching chemicals that may cause damage to the nervous system is very challenging—of the 1,000 known toxic chemicals, only a dozen have been found to be toxic, but many unknowns exist. While mammal models remain the primary selection of research labs looking at the effects of metals and certain organic molecules on the brain—especially the …

Meet Janis Weeks: A Neuroscientist Turned Global Health Advocate

Dr. Janis Weeks is the first to admit her career arc has been anything but traditional. The neuroscientist turned parasite researcher and global health advocate fell in love with Africa on her first visit in 1996, while teaching in a neuroscience short-course. Since then her connections with the African continent have grown, including becoming a …
