Control of gene expression and early development in Drosophila melanogaster

The goal of our research is to understand how genetic regulatory mechanisms impact on the elaboration of developmental pathways-- how are developmental pathways chosen and how is this choice of a pathway subsequently remembered. We have examined the mechanisms controlling pathway choice and pathway maintenance in three different D. melanogaster developmental systems.
