Welcome to the Sternberg Lab! 

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.

Lab News

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.

Strain/Reagent Requests

To request and published strain or reagent, please email Barbara Perry.  For unpublished strains or reagents, please email Paul Sternberg.
