View of the skull base of a Gsc-/- neonate stained with alcian blue and alizarin red showing reductions and deletions in the anterior midline. cer-l;gsc double mutants revealed the same phenotype as gsc-/- single mutants indicating that these genes do not interact genetically. For more details, see article by Borges et al. in the present issue.
