Strain genotypes

Posted by claireybenard on 13 Dec 2012 at 04:00 GMT

We have recently identified a background mutation in some strains described in this paper that we were not aware of until after publication. We are currently testing in which strains it is present and the consequence for maintenance of soma and axon position. We will report the results of this analysis when it is completed.
