Research SummaryOur goal is to understand the processes controlling cell division and cell size during development. We investigate the transition from oocyte to embryo, the regulators involved, and how this leads to cell cycle changes from meiosis to embryonic mitosis. We also aim to delineate the coordination of cell size between tissue layers and the regulation of replication origin activation and replication fork progression.
