Cell fate

Research Activity


One of the fundamental questions in developmental biology is how a cell can give rise to two sister cells, each of which undertakes a distinct developmenal pathway. Understanding how cells recieve, process and respond to information from their environment is vital to our understanding of how cell fate choices are made. Specifically, we are asking how the egg (a single cell) can ultimately generate the wide variety of different cell types during the process of embryogenesis. We are using early development of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis as a model system to ask these questions.
