Developmental mechanisms in cnidarians

Our group analyses diverse developmental mechanisms in cnidarians. We have developed the hydrozoan jellyfish Clytia hemisphaerica as an experimentally tractable laboratory species to study these and other processes. I am particularly interested in the cellular and molecular processes underlying oogenesis, oocyte maturation and embryogenesis, and in comparing their regulatory mechanisms between animals

Keywords: Embryogenesis / oogenesis / cnidarian / animal evolution / cytoskeleton / oocyte maturation / cell polarity

Subject area(s): Cell & Tissue Architecture | Development | Evolution & Ecology
