We are constantly developing advanced tools to enable the use of newts and axolotls as research models
Optical clearing & Light-sheet microscopy
Salamander‐Eci: An optical clearing protocol for the three‐dimensional exploration of regeneration
Cellular senescence detection in vivo & in vitro
A detailed protocol for the identification and characterisation of senescent cells in salamander tissues, as well as induction and detection of cell senescence in cultures.
Baculovirus-mediated gene delivery
A refined protocol for efficient transduction of salamander tissues using pseudotyped baculoviruses.
The P. waltl Genome Project
In a joint effort with the Simon and Leigh labs, we performed the high-coverage sequencing, annotation and chromosome-scale assembly of the giant P. waltl newt genome. Click here for accessing the genome sequence.
