Remarks / more information:

Furlong , EileenThe Furlong lab is interested in understanding the topology and dynamics of transcriptional networks within the context of embryonic development. Our work focuses on defining the transcriptional network required for muscle development, using Drosophila as a model system. We are using an integrated approach to gain a global understanding of what genes are involved in different aspects of muscle development and what their regulatory relationship is.
