sciencenote: That protein, STIM1, was previously known to sense a change in calcium within immune cells, a process that occurs when the body confronts a pathogen. Upon sensing this change, STIM1 opens a type of pore in the cell membrane, called a CRAC channel, to allow the flow of calcium ions — a vital step in activating the immune system. “People have generally thought that selectivity of ion...

jessicarohde: I will be giving a talk about my research aimed at a general audience for the FIRST TIME EVER in a little less than a week (details here). I’m not sure what to expect. An audience of hundreds or a bunch of empty seats? Salmon conservation folk who ask tough questions, or just generally curious…
House of Mind: Epigenetics →
houseofmind: The term epigenetics was introduced in the 1940s by Conrad Waddington, who defined it as: ‘‘the branch of biology which studies the causal interactions between genes and their products which bring the phenotype into being.’’ However, with the growth and evolution of genetics, the term gained a…

During our field trip, we stopped at 2 locations to observe adn collect data. At the sites we collected data for the temperature the salinity and percent of dissolved oxygen. We took a sample every meter, and noticed that as depth increased dissolved oxygen decreased. But the temperature and salinity stayed the same througouht the test. At each location we also recoreded depth visibilty by...

Caroline's January Goals
Well this year seems to be off to a fairly productive start. I submitted the SNP paper in December. Best Christmas gift ever! Now I have more writing to do. I am finishing revisions of my second chapter on salmon senescence and then, once that is polished up, I will try to find a journal to publish the work in. Additionally, I am going to begin work on the Lake Trout paper again for Steven’s...
Mac's January Goals
Happy 2012!! The beginning of this year I’ll be doing something I haven’t done in awhile - taking classes. One of those classes, Gene Regulation, will be “fairly reading intensive” (yikes!) so if you want to nerd out on some geeky, old-school regulation literature, please stop on by. I am also taking Bioinformatics for Environmental Science and I hope to have sequencing...
Dave's January Goals
December was another good month for goals. There was a whirlwind of activity and support behind the clam OA project and we made the Dec. 30 submission deadline! With that project out of the way for now, I managed to complete my other goal in december which was to get back in the lab. Yesterday I actually picked up a pipet and made some stellar RNA from the oly larvae! This month I will send RNA...
