The control of cell growth during animal development
Understanding how cells grow and divide is a fundamental question in biology. During animal development the proper regulation of cell growth is essential for controlling organ and organism size. While in cancer, deregulated cell growth is often an early event in tumor formation. We use a combination of molecular, genetic and proteomic approaches to study cell growth, using Drosophila as a model system.
