Cellular and Developmental Biology

Cellular and Developmental Biology Research Cluster in the Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program at UMass AmherstResearch in this group focuses on the molecular processes underlying cellular function and embryonic development, including how disease disrupts these processes. A variety of genetically tractable model systems are employed, including yeast, C. elegans, Drosophila, maize, Arabidopsis, Xenopus, zebrafish, and rodents. Research clusters include:
