Undergraduate students Sydney Robare and Lucas Sarko have recently joined the Meuti lab. They are working with graduate student Alden Siperstein to determine when local mosquito species enter their overwintering dormancy in the fall and when they terminate it in the spring. Welcome Sydney and Lucas!
Our article entitled “Preparing and Injecting Embryos of Culex Mosquitoes to Generate Null Mutations using CRISPR/Cas9” was just published online in the Journal of Visualized experiments. This describes the procedure that we used to generate mosquitoes that had a non-functional mutation in their circadian clocks.
