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 […]
