Most of our research uses embryos of the the little skate - a small cartilaginous fish that is abundant off the east coast of North America. The little skate is oviparous (i.e. egg-laying), so skate embryos are therefore amenable to observation and experimental manipulation. We have developed a number of experimental approaches and transcriptomic/genomic resources that are enhancing the utility of the little skate as a developmental model system.
