Model Systems

Faculty members in the Department of Developmental Biology employ several animal model systems, including fruit fly (D. melanogaster), nematode (C. elegans), zebrafish (D. rerio), and mouse (M. musculus) as well as tissue culture systems and embryonic stem cells. By combining experimental advantages of these animal and tissue culture models, along with the knowledge from human genetic and genomic studies in several Departments at WUSM, we can effectively address key questions about human development, physiology, birth defects, disease, and aging.
