... variety of neurological disorders; therefore, discovering molecular regulators of memory may reveal therapeutic targets for these disorders. C. elegans are an excellent model to uncover molecular and genetic regulators of memory. Indeed, the nematode's invariant neuronal lineage, fully mapped genome...

... homology, which is compounded by low genetic tractability compared with many model organisms. In recent years technical breakthroughs have made forward and reverse genome-scale screens in Plasmodium possible. Furthermore, the adaptation of Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR...

... both gene-driven (reverse genetics) and phenotype-driven (forward genetics) approaches. A high-efficiency ENU approach results in approx. 25 functional mutations per genome; most of these will result in hypomorphic alleles. Our group has recently begun using ENU mutagenesis as a tool for understanding...
