Research InterestsEstablishment of the body pattern at gastrulation.
Research AreaThe laboratory uses the frog Xenopus laevis and the zebrafish Danio rerio as experimental systems in which to study molecular-genetic mechanisms of early vertebrate development. Recently, we focused on mechanisms of neural crest specification, axon guidance, cell-cell adhesion, and targeted gene disruption.
