Lick Your Rats →
ohyeahdevelopmentalbiology: Some mother rats spend a lot of time licking, grooming and nursing their pups. Others seem to ignore their pups. Highly nurtured rat pups tend to grow up to be calm adults, while rat pups who receive little nurturing tend to grow up to be anxious. It turns out that the difference between a calm and an anxious rat is not genetic - it’s epigenetic. The nurturing...

The other new species that I am working on in lab is the hard clam. After some troubleshooting, Dave and I were able to...
Emma's May Goals
My first goal was to not be the first/only person to post goals this month. Thanks, Mac! It’s nice to have one goal accomplished before the first week of May is over. A lot of this month is going to be spent at NOAA working on an ocean acidification experiment with oyster larvae. The larvae arrive Monday and the experiment is projected to last 28 days. We’re going to collect data...
Mac's May goals
Happy (kinda) Spring! Ah the old familiar reminders of May: allergies, warm coats, daylight past 4pm, and FISH 3-flippin-10 baby. Biology of Shellfish is in full swing and May will continue to be busy with labs, lab reports and (my favorite) field trips. In one of the more bittersweet May moments, the last meeting of GEMS wrapped up last night. We isolated DNA from strawberries and compared...
