Abstract

Recent analyses have shed light on the roles of genes involved in early events of eye cell determination and the spatiotemporal control of differentiation within the eye field. These genes function at sequential steps in the programming, initiation, or progression of differentiation, highlighting an elegant orchestration of gene activities to achieve this striking developmental event. Progress has been made in the study of the coordination between cell cycle control and cell differentiation, as well as in the genetic control of morphogenetic movements within the developing eye disc.
