Our CSO, Dr. Chris Hopkins presented at DR. GPCR SUMMIT 2020 on why C. elegans is an ideal model to study the underlying principles of GPCRs.
Using zebrafish modeling in a rare human disease may be the perfect physiologic model to better understand the disease and generate more individualized therapeutic medical responses and positive outcomes for higher risk COVID-19 groups.
When you have to apply for a new job, you are asked to provide a resume, CV, and a cover letter. So why then aren’t you asking the same of the model organisms you are using? We put together a fun, yet very informative, C. elegans CV for you to learn more about the small worm and why it makes an ideal model for studying human diseases.
C. elegans and Zebrafish have been used to study the effects of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) for decades. August is Summer Sun Safety Month so in this month’s Research Spotlight we wanted to highlight sun safety and how C. elegans and zebrafish are helping in this field.

Despite being a relatively small and simple organism, the nematode C.elegans and we humans share many similarities at the molecular level. It is for this reason that C. elegans make a good candidate for a model organism. Check out the below infographic to learn more about some of these similarities that make C. elegans an ideal model organism.
Tune in weekly to our virtual series “Seventeen Minutes of Science” every Tuesday at 11am PST / 2pm ET where we go live on Facebook with a new guest each week to talk about how science and biotechnology is woven into their lives for (you guessed it) 17 minutes! This week on 17 Minutes of …
Knockouts are the bread and butter of reverse genetic studies. They allow researchers to study the effects of the absence of a particular gene, protein segment, amino acid, or regulatory element, thereby enabling the researcher to determine their function. Many of the classically used and widely available knockout lines researchers rely on are not precise …
