A main focus of the Pauli lab is the identification of novel functional short proteins, using zebrafish as a model system. The Pauli lab has discovered two essential short proteins which differ in their biological functions: Toddler/Apela/ELABELA is a secreted peptide...

The incredible diversity of animals and plants depends upon embryonic cells to differentiate into various cell types and to stably retain such differentiation after development. In the future, we will be able to control...
