Rice University graduate student Joseph Massey, lead author of a new study on the complexity of signaling pathways in the cells of developing organisms, looks at cells under a lab scope. Massey and Rice bioscientist Aryeh Warmflash led a team that determined protein signaling in embryos is far more complex than previously thought, as pathways take cues from many other players.
