The transition from an egg to a developing embryo is one of life’s most remarkable transformations. Now researchers have used fruit flies to decipher how one aspect — control of the translation of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) into proteins—shifts as the egg becomes an the embryo. This type of switch could tell scientists more about how human cells work and embryos develop.
