Ask me about rotation projects! Graduate students from any program interested in gene regulation, genome structure, advanced microscopy, and/or quantitative biology are encouraged to visit. Please contact Alistair by email: boettiger at stanford dot edu to set up a time. Potential Rotation Projects: Imaging insulator activity in action. Structural relationships of enhancers and promoters in development. Advanced error-correction codes […]
Postdoctoral positions available. Please send a C.V. and contact information for three references to boettiger at stanford dot edu. Additional information on working and living in the Stanford area and the resources available to postdocs: Stanford Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. http://postdocs.stanford.edu/
Interested in learning about single-molecule imaging and programming instrument control software? Join the lab as an undergraduate researcher and assist with programming our two super-resolution Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy setups! Previous experience with Matlab or Python is advantageous. Commitment 4-10 hrs/wk.
The 2nd annual Boettiger lab pumpkin carving took place this past weekend and there were some great designs. Perhaps we should have a contest next year…
Sedona passed her qualifying exam! Congratulations, Sedona!
Alistair has received a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering. More info on all of this year’s awardees is available on the Packard Foundation website.
The New Innovator Award supports unusually innovative research from early career investigators. More information on all of this year’s awardees is available here and there is also a nice article in the Stanford Daily.
Yesterday Mirae graduated with a B.S. in Physics. We are going to miss her around the lab as she heads off to do an internship in France and a Ph.D. at MIT. Congratulations, Mirae!

Alistair will be presenting a talk this afternoon (3/22) at the Systems Biology: Global Regulation of Gene Expression conference at Cold Spring Harbor. He is also co-moderating the session on the 3D Architecture of the Nucleus. If you prefer to get your fill of snow in British Columbia, you can also catch Alistair’s talk at the Keystone Symposium on Chromatin […]
Admissions microscope room tour this afternoon — meet in the DB library at 3:20pm. (thanks for the artwork, TzuChiao!)
A quick shout out to Leslie, who just passed her qualifying exam. Congratulations, Leslie! We celebrated with some wine and cake.
We went back to Foothills park for another lab picnic. It was a beautiful day, much cooler than when we were last there in August. We saw a couple of red-tailed hawks and a pocket gopher.
