Tracheal system goes lung development

A couple of months ago I was asked to join the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) action on “Developmental Origins of Chronic Lung Disease“. While we are in the first instance a transcriptional regulation lab and in the second instance a developmental biology group, we are surely not a disease-oriented group. [...]

DIY in the lab

I have spent quite a few hours now on temperature monitoring using the Raspberry Pi as cheap server platform and base station for wireless sensors. These things could potentially be interesting for a range of lab applications, where a little investment in time could save you a lot of money. Temperature, light, [...]

Fished out with Haldene’s Sieve

Radu Zabet’s recent submission to arXiv was fished out by research blog Haldene’s Sieve. Although the editors of a journal that we shall briefly call GR didn’t think this work was interesting enough for publication, it’s been really exciting to see the feedback we’ve gotten via alternative routes. If you want to openly [...]

Cambridge Sequencing Informatics Meeting 5

Royal Society International Scientific Seminar

With support of the Royal Society and organised by myself (Boris), I’m very thrilled to welcome PIs from most European tracheal system research labs to the Kavli Centre at Chicheley Hall. They will be joined by a range of researchers interested in lung, vascular and kidney development to discuss the big question: [...]

Under construction…

There was a time in the late 1990s when empty webpages with a construction sign were en vogue. Not that simply not creating that page would have been any easier… For the past few weeks we’ve been remaking our group pages bit by bit. I think it’s much better now than it’s ever [...]

Finally arriving in the Web 2.0

After five years of a mostly static web site, the Adryan group has finally arrived in the Web 2.0 with a more interactive and hopefully frequently updated web appearance.
