The lab has two poster presentations this evening as part of the Keystone 3D Genome Conference (X6) Leslie Mateo will present “Applying ORCA to visualize chromatin organization and transcription in Drosophila embryos at single-cell resolution” Sedona Murphy & Aparna Rajpurkar will present “Exploring the role of phase transition and polycomb compaction during Drosophila embryogenesis.”
The lab has a new paper online today in Nature. The paper uses a novel imaging approach to visualize chromatin and gene expression in single cells in Drosophila embryos. You can hear more about the research at the Keystone Symposium on the 3D Genome. Alistair is presenting a talk this evening and Leslie is presenting a poster on Tuesday evening.
The lab gathered together before the holidays to assemble a gingerbread house and, in the wake of the CRISPR-baby news, to watch Gattaca.
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 […]
