Reverse engineering of a developmental genetic regulatory network Meeting room 2 at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences

Tuesday 25th September 2001 - 09:30 to 10:10
No Room Required
Session Title: 
Vertical Integration in Biology: From Molecules to Organisms
I will give an overview of a collaborative project with Prof. Eric Davidson (Caltech) in which we have been reverse engineering the genetic regulatory network underlying endoderm-mesoderm specification in sea urchin embryos.

To be able to carry out this work, we have developed - and are continuing to develop - a range of new software tools and an associated reverse engineering methodology which I will describe briefly.
