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!

Amazing work from Brian Lovett @lovettbr, Raymon St. Leger and colleagues. They've engineered a fungus to specifically kill Anopheles mosquitoes. Transgenic Metarhizium rapidly kills mosquitoes in a malaria-endemic region of Burkina Faso

Please RT: I need recommendations for neuroscientists doing credible work on the basic mechanisms by which ketamine, LSD, psilocin have benefits for psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD.

Have you ever wondered how mosquitoes find nectar? Our new #preprint is out! Lateral inhibition in the mosquito brain shapes mosquito-flower interactions.

"@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."

PSA: Insect Odorant Receptors are odor-gated ion channels formed by an odor-binding Odorant Receptor (ORx) and Odorant Receptor CoReceptor (Orco).  They are NOT upside-down Gprotein coupled receptors (as a misguided review I just read from 2019 might tell you).

Our awesome paper on how lady mosquitoes select a place for their eggs is out! https://doi.org/10.7554/eLife.43963 … @eLife

Another great story from @pollyp1 and postdocs Ben Matthews and Meg Younger! A pickpocket ion channel aids in selecting appropriate oviposition water locations.

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?

Thrilled to share our latest work: using tissue specific CRISPR as a screening tool. FYI - most gRNA lines are available from BDSC Tissue-specific (ts)CRISPR as an efficient strategy for in vivo screening in Drosophila
