NXR research hotel service

Hello Xenopus community
I wanted to inform all of you that we do have space at the NXR for visiting researchers. If anyone is interested in coming and spending a week or more here please let me know. The cost for such a service is $500/week and that covers all of your consumables (chemicals, frogs, etc.). You would have to find a place to stay, but the MBL has ample housing available outside the summer. There might be room during the summer but you would have to reserve in advance. The NXR can raise tadpoles for you at a cost depending on the number.

If this interest you pleas email me for more details and to arrange such a trip.

As mentioned in a previous email the NXR is doing TALENs and we now have all the reagents and have successfully used the TALENs in laevis. This might be one reason for people to come and spend some time here, or to make some transgenics or use the imaging facilities, etc.

Hope everyone has a great summer. You will hear from me in the near future about the Imaging workshop that will be held in November and run by John Wallingford and Lance Davidson
