Unexpected role of Hunchback in retinal glia cell development

Posted by on January 24th, 2018

In our recently published work, we applied dynamic genome wide expression profiling of eye-antennal imaginal discs of Drosophila melanogaster to reveal Hunchback as central factor in retinal glia cell development. Here is the abstract: Drosophila melanogaster head development represents a valuable process to study the developmental control of various organs, such as the antennae, the dorsal[…]

Posted by on March 17th, 2016

We have PhD position available to start in October 2016 at the University Göttingen (3 yrs, 75% E 13 TV-L).   The main aim of the project will be to study intra-specific variation in compound eye size in Drosophila melanogaster. The successful PhD candidate will address this question by analyzing the genetic basis of eye[…]
