Check out the latest chapter in WormBook in GENETICS–‘Next-Generation Sequencing-Based Approaches for Mutation Mapping and Identification in Caenorhabditis elegans‘ by Maria Doitsidou, Sophie Jarriault and Richard J. Poole.
WormShow: We regret to announce that Morris and Curtis have retired from doing the Worm Show. With the guidance of Ahna Skop we are planning a new format WormShow involving community submissions of videos or other performance art. More details will be available later on the meeting website but in the mean time please think about participating by producing a video!
