Mapping of Genetic Control Elements in the Cerebellum

The mammalian cerebellum is key to motor control and contributes to many of the higher brain functions. In close collaboration with Prof. Dr Stefan Pfister of the Hopp Children’s Cancer Center Heidelberg, an international research team led by Prof. Dr Henrik Kaessmann from the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University has now decoded the genetic programmes that control the development of cerebellar cell types before and after birth.
