A study of tentacle-formation in a sea anemone, done by the Gibson Lab at the Stowers Institute, shows how epithelial cells form elongated structures and puts the spotlight on a new model organism.
Stowers Institute Investigator Jerry Workman, Ph.D., has been elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Jennifer Gerton, PhD, first became enamored of science in high school. Growing up near San Francisco, she took advantage of summer programs at several University of California campuses.
The humble fruit fly is the granddaddy of all model organisms, used to study everything from embryonic development, learning and behavior, human disease, and even drug discovery.
Postdocs in the Jerry Workman lab collaborate to show how chromatin “reSETs” to a silent state after a round of gene expression, blocking production of potentially harmful RNAs.
With RFID technology, The Cube at the Stowers Institute is designed to be part stockroom, part convenience store, and part showroom.
The Genetics Society of America has selected R. Scott Hawley, PhD, as the recipient of the 2013 George W. Beadle Award for his outstanding contributions to the community of genetics researchers.
A better “mousetrap” discovered in fruit flies might stop a human cancer-driving kinase in its tracks.
This Workman Lab postdoc balances her love for chromatin biology with passions for hiking, languages, and photography.
Genetic analysis by Stowers researchers has implications for a genetic disorder known as Hirschsprung Syndrome.
