The main purpose of the "Integrated Biology of Marine Organisms (BIOM)" research unit is to study, in an evolutionary approach, the mechanisms of development and adaptation of marine organisms. This very general objective is achieved through the use of non-conventional marine model organisms allowing comparative studies complementary to those carried out with more traditional models. This type of approach is based both on the specificities related to the diversity of the organisms studied, but also on the profound unity of the living world which allows comparisons between organisms that are in many cases phylogenetically very distant from each other.

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.

    • New publication (group 2)

      We have contributed to the paper Convergent acquisition of non-embryonic development in styelid ascidians that has just been published in Molecular Biology and Evolution.

    • New publication (group 2)

      Our team has recently published a paper on the role of canonical Wnt signaling in antero-posterio ectoderm patterning during the embryogeneis of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis. Link to the paper on the PLOS Genetics website.
