    J Gerhart
    Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley 94720, USA
    Int J Dev Biol 45:133-53. 2001
    ..This addition to the organizer is seen as a major event in chordate evolution, bringing body organization beyond that achieved by oocyte organization and meso-endoderm induction in other groups...

    John Gerhart
    Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720 3200, USA
    Curr Opin Genet Dev 15:461-7. 2005
    ..The dorsoventral axis might have undergone extensive modification in the chordate line, including centralization of the nervous system, segregation of epidermis, derivation of the notochord, and an inversion of organization...
