Work from many laboratories has begun to unveil the genetics logic behind development and we are now trying to understand how these mechanisms impinge on cell behaviour and how changes in individual cells sum up to generate organs and the whole organism. In particular, we analyse such mechanisms in three Drosophila systems: the Torso transduction pathway, morphogenesis of the trachea, and endoderm morphogenesis with particular attention to EMT.
