RNA docking and local translation control axon remodelling in vivo

Aug 16, 2017

New research by Christine Holt's lab published in Neuron shows that local mRNA translation is a key determinant in the branching of axons and thus important in building the complexity of the brain

Exploring the evidence around embryo mortality: Gavin Jarvis on F1000Research

Jul 25, 2017

In this blog post Gavin Jarvis talks us through his work and inspiration behind looking into the evidence to answer the question, 'how do we know how many embryos die?'
