New and Upcoming Viral Vectors - September 2019

Posted by Leila Haery on Sep 12, 2019 9:00:49 AM

Since the beginning of our viral service in 2016, we’ve added many new tools to our inventory of ready-to-use viral vectors. Here are some of the AAV we have released in the last few months. You can also browse our entire AAV inventory.

Our new AAVs include:

  • EGFP-expressing AAV for serotype testing
  • Calcium sensors and GABA sensors
  • Optogenetics
  • Recombinases
  • And more!

Sensing Neuronal Dopamine

Posted by Leila Haery on Jul 30, 2019 8:59:00 AM

Feelings of delight associated with the brain’s reward circuits are generally linked to dopamine (DA), a well-known reward chemical and neurotransmitter. But aside from DA’s famous role as the “happy hormone,” it’s also involved in reinforcement learning, decision making, and motor control.

Since the beginning of our viral service in 2016, we’ve added many new tools to our inventory of ready-to-use viral vectors. Here are some of the AAV we have released in the last few months. You can also browse our entire AAV inventory.

Our new AAVs include:

  • Control AAVs for serotype testing
  • jGCaMP7c for calcium detection
  • PSAM4 GlyR for chemogenetic inhibition
  • Flp expression for intersectional studies

Bringing Sustainable Practices to the Lab: Easy Action Items

Posted by Leila Haery on Apr 22, 2019 8:26:49 AM

This is the last post in a blog series on sustainable practices in the lab, where I’ll list some easy but effective habits you can incorporate to reduce your lab consumption and increase your lab sustainability. For my other posts on lab sustainability, check out my Recycling and Innovations posts.

Making small changes in your daily habits can feel ineffective or unimportant. With so many big contributors to the sustainability problem, how can one little change make a difference? Individual changes to our behavior can lead to cultural shifts that can have bigger impacts. For example, if you joined an office where everyone used a mug or reusable water bottle, you’d probably bring in a mug or reusable water bottle instead of buying yourself a big stack of plastic cups. By initiating little changes in ourselves, we can both influence others to change their behavior and we become more aware of our own consumption.
