Abstract

A fascinating area of current research for developmental biologists concerns the patterning of complex tissues. The distribution of photoreceptors across the vertebrate retina is an excellent example of patterning in a tractable model system. Recent studies defining photoreceptor distribution in developing and mature tissue have set the stage for mechanistic studies of the control of patterning.
