Hello, my name is Robb Krumlauf, and I am the scientific director of the Stowers Institute for Medical Research. What I'd like to talk to you about today in this lecture are discussion of the Hox gene regulation in vertebrate hindbrain development.

To begin our lecture, I would like to discuss by introduction the biological question that we're interested in. The title of this slide is origins and diversity of the basic animal body plan. In this beautiful artist's interpretation, you can see that the body plans of animals are very different from each other. And throughout history we have wondered how these plans are laid down. Are plans specific for a mouse, or a human, or other organisms? What we are beginning to realize is that there are common roots to all of these plans. And that is going to be a theme that I talk to you about through understanding the function of Hox genes.
