Video summary about our work on bryozoan development and the evolution of cleavage patterns published in BMC Biology!
The first 24 hours in 1.5 minutes of bryozoan embryos.
Beginning this #WormWednesday with the beginnings of a worm. The cleavage stages of the annelid Chaetopterus.
At some point in our lives, we have all been through that (=embryonic cleavage).
The BEST footage of bryozoan life cycle on the internet. Meet the coronate larva of Bugula neritina. Wow!

I wrote a text about the development and evolution of the turtle shell on The Node: Turtles in a nutshell. It shows the beginning of shell formation in embryos and how this can help us understand the evolution of such unique body pattern. 3D animations and fossils are included! Never thought I would post a […]

The renowned biologist and author was at a European scientific meeting with colleagues when a doctor delegate asked him what he was researching. Gastrulation, Wolpert replied. The doctor’s declaration of ignorance was briskly met with: “It is not birth, marriage, or death, but gastrulation […]
