Host: Alfonso Martinez-Arias

The rostrocaudal (or head-to-tail) axis elongates by virtue of populations of progenitors at the caudal end of the embryo. We have characterised two of these populations, the neuromesodermal progenitors (NMPs) and, more recently, a population of mesoderm-only progenitors, the lateral-paraxial mesoderm progenitors (LPMPs). In this talk I will discuss how NMPs are first specified; what factors maintain them and how they are eventually eliminated at the end of axis elongation. I will also discuss their relationship to LPM Ps.

This talk is part of the Genetics Seminar series.
