The segregation of cells into germ layers is one of the earliest events in the establishment of cell fate in the embryo. In the zebrafish, endoderm and mesoderm are derived from cells


Formation of the vertebrate body plan begins with the segregation of cells into germ layers. An important question in developmental biology is how these germ layers arise from an initially homogeneous population of cells. While considerable work has focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which the ectoderm and mesoderm become different, we know… (More)
