Hopeful monsters and morphogens at the beach Journal Article

Article Title: Hopeful monsters and morphogens at the beach
Abstract: The Santa Cruz Developmental Biology Conference (August 15-19, 2002) provided the latest insights into how a single cell is transformed into a complex organism. Organisms that flower, slither, walk and fly continue to provide new insights into the cell biological and molecular mechanisms that control cell movement, signalling pathways and posttranscriptional regulation; hopeful monsters sit at our doorstep to provide new insight into evolutionary change and human disease.
