#zebrafish tweeps - at the PI meeting this year, we had a very heated discussion about using F0 "crispants" as data in publications. Some felt these would be as bad as MO and less easy to control (off-target issues, multiple insertions/deletions, etc). /1
Others felt they were ok for seeing if you were on the right track with something, but that you would need to make the stable line regardless. Either the support for F0 crispant data was silent and drowned out by the negatives. Or there wasn't any support. /2
Now we have a reviewer requesting multiple "crispants" as additional data for a manuscript. Given the discussion at the PI meeting, I'm reluctant to agree to this, in part because it would reflect poorly on us to publish something considered poor science. /3

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

A little about myself: I am a new lecturer in Biological Sciences @VanderbiltU . I teach a section of Introductory Bio (220 students) and 3 sections of Intro Bio Lab (16 students/each). What's the biggest course you have had to teach? #STEMed #AcademicTwitter #phdlife #phdchat
I graduated with my Ph.D. in Biochemistry in May from @RiceUniversity . My research focused on #zebrafish genetics using #CRISPR mutagenesis. My big paper discussed a new #CRISPR tool that we developed which has an increased mutation rate+longer deletions onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.100…
