Do you work with Xenopus?
If your answer is YES, then we need to hear from you!!!

We want to know 3 basic things about Xenopus research.
* How many Xenopus labs and researchers are there in the world? 
* How many Xenopus frogs are used in research?  
* How frequently do you ovulate your frogs?

The survey will take about 3 minutes.

Survey closes October 31st, so don't delay, fill it in today!

You may need to check Xenbase (www.xenbase.org) to see if your lab and lab members have Xenbase profiles.

Thanks for taking the survey!

1. Who is the Group Leader/Professor who heads your lab?

2. In which Institution or University is the Lab based? ( e.g., UC, Berkley)

3. How many people work in the lab? (Count everyone who does research with Xenopus frogs or Xenopus proteins/tissues/cells/RNA/DNA.  Do not include your animal facility staff. Check one number for each row.).

4. Which Xenopus species do you work with in your lab? (Click check box to select species)

5. If you work with X. laevis: How many frogs do you have in your colony? (Enter a number, e.g. 110, or 0 (zero) if you have no X. laevis)

6. If you work with X. tropicalis: How many frogs do you have in your colony? (Enter a number, e.g. 110, or 0 (zero) if you have no X. tropicalis)

7. If you work with X. borealis: How many frogs do you have in your colony? (Enter a number, e.g. 60, or 0 (zero) if you have no X. borealis)

8. How often do you ovulate your frogs? Please answer for each species used in your research.
Enter e.g., 'every 3 months' or 'we double ovulate' (i.e., ovulate frogs, wait a week, ovulate frogs, rest 3 months)
or 'n/a' if you don't use that species.

9. Does your Group Leader/Professor have a profile on Xenbase?

10. Does your Lab have a profile on Xenbase? ( e.g. Miller Lab)
