In order to effectively study translational regulation in the context of embryonic development in vivo, there is a need to develop a method to quickly and gently isolate small populations of cells. Pallavi will develop such a method by immunoprecipitating (immunopanning) cells marked by a versatile, exogenous cell-type specific surface marker.
