Early patterning of the body during animal development is a fundamental process to subsequent events including cell differentiation, tissue and organ formation, and correct function of the adult body. We focused on two major topics: body segmentation and brain patterning, both of which are essential for conferring a functional complexity to the body, repetition of skeletal elements and complex neural network, respectively.
