Welcome to WingX - Systems Biology of the Drosophila Wing

The WingX project studies the development of the Drosophila wing at the systems biology level with the ultimate goal to reproduce the construction of the wing in a computer.


The WingX project is an RTD (Research, Technology and Development) project that was started in 2008 and is funded by SystemsX.ch – the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology. The principal leader of WingX Prof. Ernst Hafen (ETH Zurich) brings biologists, computer specialists, mathematicians and engineers from 12 research groups from the ETH Zurich, Universities of Zurich, Bern and Basel, and EPF Lausanne together to work on this ambitious interdisciplinary project.
