Conserved Gene Regulation

Conserved gene regulation refers to regulatory elements of the genome that are evolutionarily conserved. These elements include topologically associating domains (TADs) and cis-regulatory elements (CREs). Find the latest research on conserved gene regulation here.

Deep Homology

Deep homology investigates the genetic mechanisms that are homologous and deeply conserved across a wide range of species in evolutionary developmental biology. Discover the latest research on deep homology here.


Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Gene Evolution & Mutation

The identification of precise mutations is required for a complete understanding of the underlying molecular and evolutionary mechanisms driving adaptive phenotypic chang

Hox Gene Family

The homeobox genes (Hox gene family) encode for homeodomain-containing transcription factors, which are important in the regulation of embryonic development and cell differentiation. They have a conserved DNA binding domain that are found in the family of hox genes. Discover the latest research on hox gene family here.

Morphogens and Pattern Formation

Morphogens are signaling factors that direct cell fate and tissue development at a distance from their source. They are involved in the establishment of positional information that is essential for pattern formation. Here is the latest research.

Neuronal Guidance: Evolution

This feed focuses on mechanisms that underlie the evolution of axonal guidance pathways, neurogenesis, and synaptic connectivity. Here is the latest research.

PAX Transcription Factors

Paired Box (PAX) family of transcription factors play various roles in mammalian development. Discover the latest research on the PAX Transcription Factors here.
