Funded PhD project: optogenetic control of FGF and Eph signaling pathways during ascidian embryogenesis

Posted by on September 20th, 2019

Context: Cell-cell communication plays a central role in the coordination of morphogenesis and fate specification. Most components of the major signalling pathways have been identified. We however lack a quantitative understanding, in time and space, of the dynamics of signal transduction from the membrane to the nucleus. The CRBM Tunicate embryology Research Team uses molecular[…]

Inflate your embryo

Posted by on September 17th, 2019

How would you create a hole between two sticky surfaces? Simply crack it! At a first glance, trying to pull apart the two surfaces seems to be a good idea, but in practice, you might need a lot of energy. However, it seems that the mouse embryo has found a smart and efficient way to do[…]
