A blast from the (not so distant) past – some pictures from the International Genomic Imprinting Workshop of November 2006 which took place at the Tokyo Medical & Medical Dental University in Tokyo, Japan. This meeting featured several scientists who have used Peromyscus in their research including myself, Rachel and Mike O’Neill and Amanda Duselis, a former (incredibly prolific) grad student in my lab while I was at UC Irvine. Rachel O’Neill recently paid us a visit at the PGSC. In addition to her past and current collaborations on the Peromyscus maniculatus/polionotus hybrid dysgenesis, her group is doing some exciting work on the molecular genetics of hardarian gland tumors and subsequent metastasis in our inbred lines of P. leucopus. See the earlier paper describing these tumors here.
