Molecular and genetic control of growth
Understanding how cells grow and divide is a fundamental problem in biology. During animal development the proper regulation of cell growth is essential for controlling organ and organism size. While in cancer, deregulated cell growth is often an early event in tumor formation. We use a combination of molecular and genetic approaches to study cell, tissue and body growth, using Drosophila as a model system.
