Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, In Situ Hybridization, Antibody Staining, RNA interference(RNAi), Confocal Microscopy, Time-Lapse Microscopy, Transgenesis, Mutagenesis, Other, computational modeling
Research Description: We are using related Drosophila species as a model system to investigate how biological systems evolve. We are interested in the evolution of early embryonic patterning, neural stem cell specification, locomotion and germline stem cell development. We use a combination of genetics, imaging and modeling tools to address those questions.
