Within the Vereide group, I mainly focus on the processes of gastrulation and organogenesis in the chick embryo. Using techniques such as RNA-seq, Wavecrest, and qPCR, I study how cell location in the primitive streak predicts gene expression and cell differentiation.

Recently, I’ve been investigating the developmental time course of the chick embryo. Specifically, I’m looking into the rising and falling patterns of gene expression during different stages of development.
