Additional Information

The DevCom research plan revolves around early embryonic regulatory networks and disease networks in vertebrate embryos of the Xenopus and zebrafish model systems. The DevCom Training Programme offers computational-, experimental- and soft complementary skills workshops, as well as one cross-over workshop integrating computational analysis and experimental design.
