Genetic regulation of avian sex determination
Professor Vincent Harley (CIB)
This project aims to enhance our understanding of gonadal sex determination (the development of testis versus ovary), using innovative genetic approaches to define the key regulatory molecular events in birds. It intends to enhance knowledge in the area of cell biology, embryology, and sex determination specifically.
