The Quest for Fulfillment: Drosophila Nervous System Development
From Jeff Layne on October 4th, 2016
Associate Dean, College of Natural Sciences,
Dr. Steven Robinow researches the genetic principles of neural development by studying the brain development of drosophila (a genus of small flies, belonging to the family Drosophilidae, often called “fruit flies”). Among other things, in this presentation he explains the role of nuclear receptors in the activation of gene reception and looks into mutant phenotypes. A major purpose of Dr. Robinow’s research is to provide insights into the transcriptional networks regulating interneuron development.
