SummaryMesoderm formation is an important process of embryonic development. It plays an essential role in trunk formation and organ development in mammals. It is controlled by several interacting signalling pathways, which also play an important role in tumour progression. Novel methods are utilized for deciphering the complex regulatory networks comprising thousands of gene products, which control mesoderm formation in the embryo and in tumours.
