Dear worm breeders,

We are writing to enlist your support in 
spreading the word about the C. elegans course at 
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory that we are 
teaching this summer  (July 27-August 14)  

As in previous years the course will focus on the 
biology and genetics of C. elegans. There will 
be, however, some changes. First, we will, for 
the first time, devote part of the final week to 
biochemical experiments involving protein 
purification from animals expressing a TAP-tagged 
protein. This section will be supervised by two 
new instructors, Arshad Desai and Karen Oegema, 
who are experts in protein purification. Second, 
we would like to broaden recruitment to the 
course.  In past years  preference has been given 
to students going to labs with little or no 
experience in C. elegans genetics. We feel that 
the field has changed and that we should open the 
course to everyone; the inclusion of biochemistry 
in the curriculum makes this even more 
appropriate. Thus, while we will still make room 
for newcomers to the field, we would also like to 
encourage applicants who will be going to 
established worm labs to enlist in the course. A 
nice balance should make the course even more 

Invited speakers for this summer are Joe Culotti, 
Tim Schedl, Ralf Sommer, Mei Zhen, Shai Shaham, 
Hitoshi Sawa, Lesilee Rose, Raffi Aroian, Abby 
Dernburg, Kaveh Ashrafi, Franck Slack.
Deadline for registration is March 15
