Name: Daron C Barnard
Position: Professor
Research Description:
I study the molecular mechanisms that control early development, using the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) as a model organism. I am particularly interested in understanding the molecular and genetic mechanisms used to silence mRNAs before they are needed, and then how the mRNAs are activated to allow translation to occur. The mechanisms involved are key to both maintaining immature eggs (oocytes) in an inactive state, and the subsequent activating event to become mature eggs, competent to be fertilized.
