I had the wonderful opportunity to spend two weeks studying in the Gene Regulatory Networks for Development course at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) at Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The course was led by Dr. Scott Barolo (U Michigan Medical School) and Dr. Isabelle Peter (Cal Tech) with contributions from many additional faculty.
The course focused on ways to experimentally and computationally analyze and visually represent the regulatory networks that control gene expression. Integrated networks of gene expression control developmental processes ranging from sea urchin endoderm and mesoderm specification, arthropod body segment patterning, development of limbs, determination of organ size, and more.
