Signalling pathways directing wing development and vein pattern formation in Drosophila


The Drosophila wing originates from an epithelial tissue (wing imaginal disc), which growth and differentiation depends on the activity of conserved signalling pathways and transcription factors. The main focus of our work is to characterise the contribution of signalling pathways to the regulation of imaginal wing disc development.
