GEMS: Genetics with Eukaryotic Model Systems

GEMS is a monthly multi-lab meeting devoted to the use of genetic approaches in eukaryotic model organisms such as C. elegans, Drosophila, and Arabidopsis to study problems in development, signal transduction and gene expression. GEMS is based in the CBMG Department and was initiated in 1995. GEMS participants include 16 laboratories at UMD (CBMG, BIOL, ENTM and ANSC), UMBI (CBR and CARB), and Howard University.
