Regardless of the species, the development of a multicellular organism requires the precise execution of essential developmental processes including patterning, growth, proliferation and differentiation. The cell cycle, in addition to its role as coordinator of DNA replication and mitosis, is also a coordinator of developmental processes, and is a target of developmental signaling pathways. Perhaps because of its central role during development, the cell cycle mechanism, its regulation and its effects on developing tissues is remarkably complex. It was in this light that the Keystone meeting on the cell cycle and development at Snowbird, Utah in January 2004 was held.
