From June 4 to July 17 Carine joined the MBL Embryology course in Woods Hole. This course has a longstanding tradition (since 1893) in teaching students, postdocs and faculty the nuts and bolts of developmental biology. From C. elegans, chick and ctenophore to sea urchin, snails and squid (and zebrafish of course!), the morning lectures and experiments that lasted until the wee hours of the night covered them all. Now let’s see if she can convince the Vastenhouw lab to add some new species to its repertoire!
