  • Foo, Sun et al. find that in the Drosophila embryo, the Zygotic Genome Activator Zelda increases chromatin accessibility, facilitates DNA binding of the dorsoventral morphogen, Dorsal, and promotes earlier and more robust expression of Dorsal targets such as sog. Similar mechanisms may be key to widespread transcriptional induction during genome activation.

Kris Gunsalus talks about her latest Cell paper on gene networks in a complex tissue

High-content screening for gene profiling has generally been limited to single cells. Here, we explore an alternative approach—profiling gene function by analyzing effects of gene knockdowns on the architecture of a complex tissue in a multicellular organism. Read More
