Keller Lab Projects


There are several projects going on in the Keller lab. Here are some of the primary lab projects:


Neural Convergence and Extension: Mechanism and Patterning

Neural Tube Closure



PCP genes in Xenopus

Superficial Mesoderm Morphogenesis

All amphibians have mesoderm in their superficial epithelial layers before gastrulation. We are interested in how it moves into the deep layers and how it is patterned, in a variety of amphibians.
