The Sive Lab studies vertebrate development, using frogs and zebra fish (pictured) because they are amenable to genetic, molecular, and live imaging approaches. The red in the photo is actin, the blue nuclei, the green ER.
Researchers in the Weinberg Lab captured this stunning photo showing the different stages of skeletal muscle differentiation. As the muscle progenitors differentiate, their color changes from green to red to pink.
Conducting their investigations at world-class facilities, MIT Biology researchers are working at the frontier of molecular inquiry making vital contributions in genetics, genomics, and computational biology.
