Micropublication 2020- Loss of proteasome subunit RPN-12 causes an increased mean lifespan at a higher temperature in C. elegans

We had a micro publication accepted and published today. This is work that was originally started with the generation of a mutant rpn-12 strain in Andy Golden’s lab by Tyler Hansen. And continued with the follow-up experiments by an undergraduate in the Allen lab Victoria Nguyen and graduate student Michelle Fernando. Congrats to all the authors!

March 13, 2020- Temporary closure of lab due to COVID-19

Like labs around the country and around the world, the Allen lab has been temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the in-person research has been shut down, everyone is trying to be productive working from home. Michelle is busy trying to write-up her RPN-12 story for publication. Benedict and Taina are busy using this time to read more about their areas of research and take some online training courses.
