Abstract

Activation of extracellular signal regulated kinase (ERK) is used by many signaling pathways to control tissue patterning in a broad range of multicellular organisms. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Johnson et al. (2017) provide an optogenetic approach to manipulate this pathway with high precision and explore its signaling code.
