Hi chris. My name is gidi shemer and I'm also after my first year in the
phd (I'm working in the technion, israel in beni podbilewicz lab). I
have'nt tryed the soaking method but if you want some details, I thing
you should write to Ron Eliss. In the last meeting he showed  some nice
staff about this method with the gene fem-1. As for the positive control,
you can use apx-1. You should get dead embryos arested at about 50 cells
stage with hyper pharyngal cells. If you want more details, e.mail me at
work (bishemer at tx.technion.ac.il). bye, gidi.
