Robust gene networks from the depths of our evolutionary history (Zeller Lab and Zuniga Lab)


A series of switches in the genome ensures the correct development of extremities - and gave evolution leeway to produce very different extremities.

A sophisticated system guides the development of our limbs. Researchers at University of Basel have shed new light on the genetic toolkit used during evolution to create a range of different extremities such as fins, wings, hooves, toes and fingers.
