PI Contribution We have done most of the experimental work related to this collaboration, and also taken the lead on experimental design and manuscript preparation.
Collaborator Contribution This collaboration has enhanced our work on stem cell regulation in C. elegans. Our collaborators have provided strains, reagents and experimental work that has been useful in our research, and we have discussed our ideas with them and co-authored a paper on which I was the senior author.
