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[…]
