How is a great diversity of neurons generated from a small number of stem cells? To answer this question, I used RNA sequencing to determine differences in gene expression between immature neuron lineages from different stem cells in Drosophila. This resource gives insight into the establishment of neuronal identity after cell fate commitment. In contrast to determining the important gene expression differences leading to dversification, I am also determining which aspects of this transcriptional programming are common to all of these immature neurons.
