I'm excited to be at the Eighth International Symposium on Molecular Insect Science in Sitges Spain! Looking forward to many great talks! I'm presenting our genomic #HACKing work, and our update to use it for generating knock-ins. Works great! Manuscript to be submitted soon!

Tal día como hoy de 1707 nacía Carl Linnaeus, el padre de la nomenclatura y sistemática biológica. En 1762 describía y daba nombre al mosquito de la fiebre amarilla: "Aedes aegypti". Ilustracione de Terzi, A. J. E. 1872-1956.

"@SenatorCollins on Thursday introduced a bill that would devote more than $100 million in new federal spending to combat Lyme and other tickborne diseases. ... If it becomes law, it would be the highest amount ever approved for tick-borne diseases."
New landmark papers on the anatomy and function of the lateral horn region in the fly brain. Amazing work from @gsxej and colleagues @as_bates @dolanmjg @flyconnectome @dddavi @sfrechter @HHMIJanelia . (1) https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.43079 … (2)
Another great story from @pollyp1 and postdocs Ben Matthews and Meg Younger! A pickpocket ion channel aids in selecting appropriate oviposition water locations.
Back-to-back papers with an incredibly comprehensive analysis of the anatomy and physiology of the Drosophila lateral horn, from @gsxej @dolanmjg https://elifesciences.org/articles/43079 https://elifesciences.org/articles/44590 Insight article by @ikadow
Such a cool new study in @CurrentBiology! '#Drosophila Acquires a Long-Lasting Body-Size #Memory from Visual Feedback' Fruit flies build a most stable long-term memory for their body size and body reach. so cool since flies vary so much in size! https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(19)30435-X …
As a grad student, I made flies with giant heads but normal bodies (eyFLP mosaic heads mutant for Tsc1). They looked like buffalo. And sadly, they got their giant heads stuck in cracks, like they didnt realize how big their heads were. I wonder how they would do in these assays?
