BOULDER, COLORADO-- Nearly 600 scientists gathered at the base of the Flatirons to discuss the growth and patterning of organisms including plants, worms, fruit flies, fish, and mice at the 59th annual meeting of the Society for Developmental Biology. Among the highlights were clues about how blind cave fish lost their eyes and how a gene that influences cell movement might help cancer spread.
