Targeting Drosophila eye development

Genome Biol. 2006;7(7):226. doi: 10.1186/gb-2006-7-7-226.


In order to understand the role of transcription factors in particular developmental processes it is necessary to know their target genes. A combination of bioinformatics, comparative expression profiling and microarray-based epistasis experiments has recently identified new targets of Eyeless, a key transcription factor in Drosophila retinal determination.
