We are particularly interested in the roles of TGF-β/Nodal and Wnt signaling pathways in mesoderm induction and dorsovental patterning of vertebrate embryos. Genes mediating Nodal and Wnt signaling in zebrafish embryos are being studied using genetic, biochemical and molecular approaches. We also aim to understand the functional importance of microRNAs in early development of zebrafish embryos.
