Comparative developmental biology

I am interested in the evolution of developmental mechanisms. Model organisms provide formidable genetic tools, but they allow us to probe only a fraction of the diversity found in nature. Inspired by work in Drosophila, my lab has developed experimental approaches in other arthropods (crustaceans and insects), helping to establish new models for studying body axis formation, segmentation, appendage specialization and regeneration.

Keywords: Pattern formation / axis specification / regeneration / evolution
