ABOUT THE PRACTICAL COURSE
A fundamental question in developmental biology is how myriads of
neurons get specified from progenitor cells and become organized into
complex functional networks. Little is known on the dynamics of neural
lineage decisions, cell polarity and migratory events during nervous
system patterning and morphogenesis.
The objective of the EMBO Practical Course is to provide theoretical
and practical background on the zebrafish model system for direct
assessment of open questions using novel microscopy techniques.
