Our laboratory is interested in the systems biology of nematodes. We seek to understand how the properties of an organism are encoded in its genome.
September 2018. We were awared a two-year grant from the NIH-NIMH to generate cGAL drivers for every neuron class and test them by perturbing neurons during male mating behavior.
