Gilberto Bento in town


Gilberto Bento, former Sommer Lab member best know for his 2010 Nature paper on the Pristionchus pacificus mouth form polyphenism, managed to make a return visit to Tübingen this weekend. A few of us went out for dinner and beers during his all-to-brief stay. In the photo, left-right, is Gilberto, Akira Ogawa (our esteemed Japanese postdoc who is soon leaving the lab) and Matthias Herrmann, our resident beetle taxonomist. Bento can now be found working on the genetics of Daphnia magna in the lab of Dieter Ebert in Basel, Switzerland.
