We study how the Hox family of transcription factors bind to the correct DNA sequences and regulate the correct target genes in vivo.
We are studying how the neural circuitry that is required for coordinated walking in adult flies is constructed during development, and how it functions in the adult.
New paper published today in Current Biology about the origins of insect wings, and how they are genetically specified. Congratulations Ryan Loker, Carlos Estella, et al.!
