Opportunity for Collaboration (shelf-screen) in Kawakami Lab
Dr. Kawakami's lab has generated more than 1,600 transgenic fish lines that express Gal4 in specific organs, tissues and cells, which should be potentially useful for many purposes. You may look at these expression patterns partly on the web database (http://kawakami.lab.nig.ac.jp/ztrap/). However, the database contains only a couple of side-view images that were taken by a stereoscope during our routine screening. If you are interested in particular expression patterns, visit his lab, perform "shelf-screen", look at them by your eyes more precisely, and find lines that are useful for your research.
There are three systems. You may apply for collaborative research NIG-JOINT A (up to 200,000JPY for travel expense) or NIG-JOINT B (up to 1,000,000JPY for travel expenses and some research money) or NIG-JOINT I (up to 500,000JPY for travel expenses for foreign researchers) (B and I are a bit competitive. You may apply for A simultaneously).
The deadline of the application is 14th December, 2018.
