News

  • 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.

  • The Blau Lab published a paper in the September issue of PLOS Biology in which they described how clocks in individual neurons synchronize with each other for a coherent internal timer.

  • In collaboration with colleagues at the Stazione Zoological Anton Dohrn in Naples, Italy, a paper was published in Nature Communications, where they dissected the transcriptional dynamics underlying pigment cell specification.

  • Alberto Stolfi from the Christiaen lab published a paper in eLife, in collaboration with Elijah Lowe, Billie J Swalla and C Titus Brown. This shows that divergent mechanisms control conserved gene expression and developmental patterns between distant ascidian species.

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
