A recent study published by the team provides novel insight into the gastrointestinal motor activity dynamics during avian embryonic development is online in Development ! Using high-resolution ehcography, retroviral transgenesis and 3D-clearing approaches applied on chick embryos we highlight the progressive acquisition of functional and corrdinated gastrointestinal motility before birth.
