The pattern of research

Posted by on April 2nd, 2019

The correct patterning of embryonic tissues is essential for normal development. Aberrant patterning can lead to developmental abnormalities and pathogenic defects. Therefore, studying developmental patterning is important to better understand disease. The zebrafish embryo is a fantastic model for studying patterning during development owing to its optical clarity, small size and large clutch number. When[…]
