Clarissa’s presentation was on “Comparing genome-wide association results for fear conditioning in two advanced intercross mouse lines: Implications for gene identification in Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in humans” . Clarissa was accompanied to the World Congress by fellow lab members Amy Hart and Abraham Palmer.
Clarissa Parker, Amy Hart and Dr. Abraham Palmer visit Jackson Labs for Short Course on Genetics of Addiction
This is the third year that Abraham has been co-director of the course. Amy and Clarissa received tuition wavers.
Abraham made a quick trip to Paris where he gave a talk, ate some food and then flew home. It was a very nice and highly informative meeting put on by Xavier Montagutelli of the Institut Pasteur.
The Palmer lab was well represented at this meeting by Camron Bryant, Clarissa Parker, Amy Hart and Natalia Gonzales, all of whom won travel awards. Clarissa organized a symposium and gave a talk.
The talk was titled “Behavioral genetics of complex behavioral traits in mice: gene identification and mechanistic studies”
Dr. Abraham Palmer and Natalia Gonzales attend Genes & Behavior Gordon Research Conference in Galveston, Texas.
This years meeting was titled “Decoding sequenced genomes” and featured talks on behavioral genetics across a range of different organisms. Abraham served as a discussant and Natalia presented a poster and won a travel fellowship.
A recording of Dr. Palmer presenting this poster is available at the meetings website (ACNP membership required).
