Research Description

Dr. Simcox studies EGF receptor signaling in the early wing disc. This simple system is about 30 cells in a just hatched larva and grows to about 150 cells in two days. The goal is to decipher the complete gene regulatory network that operates in this short period of time to specify the adult wing and body wall of the thorax.
