Hello and welcome to “Hoxful Monsters” my Biology blog with some special emphasis on evolutionary developmental biology. I am a graduate student from France, working in the field of developmental biology trying to understand Hox gene function in Fruit fly Drosophila.These days I am trying to explore the field of evo devo in more detail and this interest of mine is the main reason for starting Hoxful monsters ,which gives a platform to share my views on evo devo and a chance to interact with many people.
What can you expect from Hoxful monsters????
As one can imagine this name is inspired from Hopeful monsters of Goldschmidt ,so obviously you can find me discussing stuff related to evo- devo giving importance to role of Hox genes ( that’s why the name Hoxful). In addition to several aspects of evo devo ,you can also find some fundamental stuff concerning life sciences in the category “Fundamental” for the beginners.Hope I can strike a decent balance between basic and complex stuff.Look out for some latest ongoings in field of biology also ,in the section “Science News”.
