A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the genetic
control of muscle development during Drosophila embryogenesis and to
use
cross-species approaches to identify evolutionarily conserved myogenic
regulatory genes.  We have recently dissected the regulatory elements
that
control expression of the myogenic regulatory gene D-mef2 in
Drosophila and
have cloned several novel myogenic transcription factors. 
Opportunities
are also available to clone the mouse homologs of these genes and
assess
their functions.
