Speakers Dr. Richard Adams (Physiology, Development and Neuroscience) Toward a quantitative description of developmental morphogenesis.
PhD projects are available for students interested in studying morphogenesis in cell culture or in a developmental context in the fly.
We are using these new tools to probe the cellular interactions which govern root morphogenesis in the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana.
Greg's BSc (Microbiology) was obtained from Liverpool University (1996) where he explored the effects of electricity on fungal morphogenesis.
We have implemented a genetic approach to dissect cell cycle control of spindle morphogenesis using S. cerevisiae.
