The developing retina is an excellent model to study cellular fate determination and differentiation in the context of a complex tissue. Over the last decade, many basic principles and key genes that underlie these processes have been experimentally identified. In this review, we construct network models to summarize known gene interactions that underlie determination and fundamentally affect differentiation of each retinal cell type. These networks can act as a scaffold to assemble subsequent discoveries. In addition, these summary networks provide a rational segue to systems biology approaches necessary to understand the many events leading to appropriate cellular determination and differentiation in the developing retina and other complex tissues.

The publication of our paper in Bioinformatics and Biology Insights was highly professional and very pleasant on all levels: the guidelines for authors are concise, the online submission system is user-friendly, the comments from the reviewers were insightful and improved our paper, and the preparation of the manuscript for publication was efficient. I particularly liked the fast feedback from the staff on the state of the submission and review process.
