Somite and neural tube patterning by Sonic hedgehog signalling. The Borycki lab uses the vertebrate chick and mouse animal models to study how the morphogen signalling molecule Sonic Hedgehog and its effectors, the Gli transcription factors, specify somitic and neural progenitor cells during embryonic development.
