Lecture Title: Eggs & RNA: Gene regulation in the early embryo

In animals, fertilized eggs are initially transcriptionally quiescent and rely on an extensive maternal contribution of RNA to guide the initial stages of development. How these maternal factors coordinate to activate transcription from the embryonic genome remains poorly understood. In this talk, I will describe our efforts to understand how the embryonic genome is activated, through experimental and computational genomics in zebrafish and other vertebrates.
