Welcome to the JEDI website!
This is a portal to the JEDI club, created to allow Junior European Drosophila Investigators to share ideas, data, expertise and resources.
Who are the JEDIs
The JEDIs are early career scientists working on Drosophila melanogaster in Europe and having recently established their independent research group. Click here to see a list of the members and here to know more about the initiative.
Can I become a JEDI?
You don’t become a JEDI. You are born JEDI. Just kidding. If you run your own laboratory and call yourself a fly person you are welcome to join us by registering here. For now the club is open to researchers who are at early stages of their independent careers, possibly in a pre-tenure phase. Please, be aware that you will need to receive an invitation code from a JEDI to become one.
Join a Group... or more
Create or join a JEDI group relevant to your research interests to receive updates and information that are close to what you most care about.
