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
