Hi worm community,
The Glow Worms research stream of the Freshman Research Initiative at The University of Texas at Austin is a CURE course for undergraduate students to learn CRISPR via tagging of worm genes with GFP knock-in.
This semester we have 32 students tagging 32 genes. Next semester we would like to tag targets requested by the worm community. Our initial aim is to tag genes that would serve as excellent cellular or subcellular markers for distribution to the CGC and ultimately to you. We have funding for this project, so there is no cost.
Please feel free to submit requests here or to doonan [at] utexas [.edu] with a brief description of the potential high impact of tagging the gene. We look forward to hearing from the community! Thank you for your input!
