Coral’s research interests are in cellular and developmental genetics, with a focus on how cells respond to signals from their environment. Her group studies the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as it is a fantastic model organism for studying how genes function in cells and during development. –  Read More about Drosophila here
