The research laboratory, "Integrative Biology of Marine Organisms" (BIOM), promotes an evolutionary approach to studies of developmental mechanisms and adaptation. By comparing physiological responses of well-characterized organisms, we investigate how biological systems at different levels respond to and integrate environmental cues.

We have experience with a variety of traditional biological models (echinoderms, fish) and are actively pursuing the development of new models (prochordates (urochordates and cephalochordates), hemichordates, marine microalgae). We are also developing applications and techniques for using these model species as biological activity screening tools and for marine ecotoxicological studies in collaboration with governmental agencies and industrial partners.

ACTUALITÉS

    • New publication (group 2)

       
      Sébastien Darras and his colleagues from USA have just published a paper on the role of canonical Wnt signalling in regulating antero-posterior axis during the development of the hemichordate Saccoglossus kowalevskii.CNRS website (in French) and PLoS Biology website. Check out our Behindthe paper post (Nature Ecology&Evolution community blog).

    • New publication (group 2)

       
      We have participated in a collaboration with the group of F. Viard (Roscoff marine station) on species delineation within the genus Ciona. The work is now published in Scientific Reports.
