  1. Fruit fly as a model organism
    • Development of body plan
    • Generation of differentiated cell lineages
    • Formation of nervous system, hear and musculature
    • Programmed cell death
    • Genetic control of behavior
    • Cancer genes and control of cell proliferation
    • Control of cell polarization
    • Effect of drugs, alcohol, pesticides
  2. Mouse as a model organism
    • Development of body tissues
    • Function of mammalian immune system
    • Formation and function of brain and nervous system
    • Models of cancers and other human diseases
    • Gene regulation and inheritance
    • Infectious disease
  3. Transcription activation of genes
    Activating combinations of genes in patterns controls developmental decisions (ex. tissue type, organ position in body, cell type, cell life
