Congratulations to Alex Young – today was MSc thesis submission day!

Alex wrapped up all his revisions yesterday, and submitted his thesis today.

Expression Patterns of Neural-Specific Genes in the Pond Snail, Lymnaea stagnalis

Two and a bit years of hard work culminated in 5 total chapters – 3 of which are destined for publication. He used bioinformatics, quantitative PCR and in-situ hybridization to find patterns of gene expression, focusing on neurotransmitter-related genes in Lymnaea.  Congratulations Alex on a fantastic achievement. Next up for him: some more work wrapping up those publications, and then hopefully off to start a PhD.
