Research

We would like to know how early developmental genes control cell fate in the zebrafish. Since developmental processes are conserved among the vertebrates, the underlying genes are likely to be conserved as well. Hence, learning what these genes do in zebrafish will help us understand what is going on in dryer creatures, like, for example, people.
