Genes to Cell Lineage

How microRNAs regulate molecular networks to coordinate the multitude of processes of adult neurogenesis Modified BMC Genomics Abstract: The addition of adult-born neurons into functional circuits requires precise spatiotemporal coordination across molecular networks regulating a wide array of processes, including cell proliferation, apoptosis, neurotrophin… Continue Reading “Genes to Cell Lineage”

Evolution of Behavior

How divergence of species or breeds drives different spatiotemporal patterns of adult neurogenesis and related singing behavior Many birds exhibit dramatic phenotypic differences in behavior even across closely related subspecies or breeds. We would like to exploit the powers of genetic linkage mapping to… Continue Reading “Evolution of Behavior”
