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.
