The Developmental Systems thematic area focuses on the nature, control, and evolution of those processes that comprise the life cycle of organisms. This area includes research on the mechanisms of gametogenesis, fertilization, embryogenesis, differentiation, pattern formation, and morphogenesis, including research on the development, regeneration, and aging of the nervous system. Genomic approaches, gene networks, integration of developmental gene pathways, and computational approaches are included. Studies that explore the evolution of developmental mechanisms are encouraged.
