"Science on the fly: how genetics reveals molecular, cellular and developmental processes in animals"
Development of an embryo can be viewed as the sum of a range of cell behaviours such as cell division, migration, death and differentiation. Each of these processes requires a complex set of regulatory and mechanical molecules and all have to be coordinated to generate an organism with the appropriate body plan. In this talk I will explain how genetics has been used to dissect such complicated processes. I will focus on the way that genetic analysis of a model organism, Drosophila melanogaster, has been used to better understand two processes, animal development and cell division, and how these studies have impacted on our understanding of the biology of other animals, including ourselves.
