Areas of Interest

Stem cells in the fruit fly brain divide to produce a steady stream of additional stem cells while simultaneously producing hundreds of differentiated daughter neurons. What genes control this balance between stem cells and differentiating cells? Which of these genes have orthologs that function in mammalian brain development? Misregulation of such genes may cause birth defects or brain cancer.
