How to “Run” embryonic development

Posted by on July 24th, 2019

The term “embryonic development” was originally proposed some 2,400 years ago by Aristotle, however, many aspects of how the genome regulates development remain unclear. One major challenge of the modern Genomics Era is to better understand how transcriptional factors, transcriptional activators and repressors, regulate gene expression in order to support spatiotemporal outputs that change over[…]
