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.
