Our long-term research goal is to understand how tissue-specific gene regulatory networks control and coordinate the basic processes underlying cell behavior during morphogenesis. We study the migrating cells of the cardiogenic mesoderm in embryos of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis as a model system to investigate this problem.
