Osteogeneisis and Skeletal development

Research Area

I run a Chilean laboratory focusing on the process of bone formation, or osteogenesis, using Xenopus tropicalis as a model organism. Indeed, the availability of two amphibian genomes, combined to the emergence of powerful molecular tools and to the easy access to thousands of externally developing tadpoles make amphibian species particularly suited to study late developmental processes such as organogenesis.
