In mid-March 2016, Pavel visited the lab of our collaborator Prof. Tatjana Sauka-Spengler in Oxford, UK. Tatjana’s lab established a genetically encoded system for biotinylation of specific targets in fish cells, allowing, among other applications, tissue-specific isolation of nuclei. Supervised by a cheerfully enthusiastic PhD student Vanessa Chong, Pavel performed several rounds of nuclei isolation and is looking forward to introduce this method to Vastenhouw lab. Apart from having great time in Tatjana’s lab, Pavel also explored the charming campus of the Oxford University.
Thanks the entire Sauka-Spengler lab for a great time!
