Taxa Studied: Invertebrate Animals
Techniques Employed: Degenerate PCR, Quantitative PCR (qPCR), Sanger Sequencing, 454 Pyrosequencing, Solexa (Illumina) Sequencing, Bioinformatics/Sequence Analysis, In Situ Hybridization, Antibody Staining, RNA interference(RNAi), Sectioning for Histology, Sectioning for Electron Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Epifluoresence Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy, Time-Lapse Microscopy, seawater research aquaria
Research Description: We are applying a molecular geo- and palaeobiological approach – including molecular biology, genomics, and molecular phylogenetic techniques in reconciliation with the fossil record – in a research programme that focusses on temporal and spatial aspects of the evolution, diversification and biomineralization of geobiologically important marine invertebrate taxa like sponges, echinoderms, and molluscs, from the individual/genome level to ecosystems.
