Research project: Our unit is studying early vertebrate development, focusing on the molecular mechanisms that control neural development, from germ layer formation and neural induction to those that regulate neural stem cell proliferation and differentiation. Gene function is approached using microinjection into amphibian embryos and genetic knockouts in the mouse. For more information on our recent work, see Souopgui et al., Genes and Dev. (2008) 22, 2347-2352; Nichane et al., (2010) EMBO. J. 29, 55-67.           

            The project focuses on the function of DMRT genes encoding zinc finger transcription factors in the development of the cerebral cortex. The project involves the phenotypic analysis of the cortex of DMRT mutant animals, gene overexpression and  knockdown in utero, the identification of  their targets  and the analysis of their transcriptional regulation in transgenic frog embryos.
