Everything is coming together smoothly in the lab, and several of our working groups have completed initial experimental set-ups.
We would like to congratulate the E-Field/Na group, led by Michelle and Leon, on successfully replicating a previous paper on the movement of C. elegans in an electrophoresis chamber. This accomplishment has been long in the making, and we are excited to say that the set up and worms are cooperating to see the predicted outcome.
We would also like to congratulate our Phototaxis group, led by Shirley, for finishing their preliminary experimental set up as well. They have started to take videos and trials to find the response time of C. elegans under blue light stimulations, and they will soon begin analysis on their data from this weekend.
