Simulation of Segmentation genes of Honeybee embryos


Owheo 106 - 1:00 pm, Friday 16th August


The subdivision of insect embryos into segmental entities is a key process that takes place in early developmental stages of the embryos. Interactions between segmentation genes lead this process that result in forming stripes of genes along the anterior-posterior axis of embryos. Drosophila and Honeybee embryo are examples that show this kind of subdivision during their early developmental stages.
In this presentation, I will speak about computational techniques that we use to model segmentation genes in Honeybee embryos; and also I present the simulation results that show how likely one particular gene is regulated by other genes during the segmentation stages of Honeybee embryo development.

This talk provides a summary of my phd thesis.
