-  * <color maroon>​How cells respond to external signals,</​color>​  +
-  * <color maroon>​How the timing and number ​of cell division ​are controlled,</​color>​ +
-  * <color maroon>​How cells acquire unique identities,</​color>​ +
-  * <color maroon>​How environmental signals modulate animal behavior</​color>​+
  
-<color maroon>These questions form the basis of our work to understand the mechanisms of diseases, such as cancer and neuronal degeneration, with the ultimate goal of developing potential treatments. For this we are using two well-known ​nematode ​(worm) model organisms //C. elegans// and //C. briggsae//. These tiny animals (roughly 1 mm long) are particularly useful in discovering the roles of conserved genes and pathways in processes that are shared among all eukaryotes.\\+  * How cells respond to external signals,

-Our approach is multidisciplinary and includes techniques in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, bioinformatics,​ and engineering. We collaborate extensively with other laboratories,​ both at McMaster and outside, to develop new tools and resources. The applied aspect of our work involves making use of basic research findings and in-house tools to carry out drug discovery projects.</​color>​\\+Our approach is multidisciplinary and includes techniques in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, bioinformatics,​ and engineering.
