Developmental genetics of ribosome synthesis in Drosophila

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

54 Scopus citations


The coordination of expression of more than 70 genes that code for the ribosome represents a complex problem for the cell and for the developing organism, in terms of gene expression and regulation. The rapid advances made in the fields of genetics and molecular biology of Drosophila make this organism a valuable model system for studying the regulatory phenomena involved in ribosome synthesis during development.
