Color patterns are prominent features of most animals; they are highly variable and evolve rapidly leading to large diversities between species even within a single genus. [more]
Elisa Izaurralde investigated the mechanisms that control the cellular fate of mRNA and hence are central to the regulation of gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. [more]
Embryogenesis establishes the body organization of multicellular organisms from the fertilized egg cell (zygote) by generating specific cell types in a position-dependent manner.  [more]
Using the main visual processing area in chicken embryos as a model, the department explored how the nervous system forms connections, often over large distances. [more]
We use fresh water polyps as a model organism to understand generation of spatial patterns in the development of organisms and biological pattern formation. [more]
