  • Kareiva, Isaac; Moroz, Leonid; Swalla, Billie; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
    Brachyury is a transcription factor important for mesoderm formation in chordates. Ctenophores are basal metazoans with little known about their germ layer organization. For this reason, brachyury was used as a possible ...
  • Churches, Nathan; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
    The evolution of multicellular animals required the development of epithelial tissues that function in controlling the transport of molecules from one environment to another. Collagen proteins are crucial to the formation ...
  • Bruders, Rebecca; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
    Wnt signaling is known to be critical for proper embryonic development in most animals studied to date15. But key evolutionary questions on the origin and evolution of this pathway in the metazoan common ancestor are ...
  • Wu, Peter; Seufert, Daniel; Swalla, Billie (2011-06)
    Typical chordate features found in ascidian tadpole larvae have been evolutionarily lost several times independently within the Molgulidae family. While tailed molgulids retain a tail with muscl ...
  • Swore, Josh; Moroz, Leonid; Swalla, Billie; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
    Ctnenophores are a group of marine, jelly like, comb bearing metazoans. This phylum consists of an estimated 100-­‐200 species (Mills CE, 2012). Ctenophores are similar to cnidarians in that ...
  • Sanford, Rachel; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
    LIM homeobox (Lhx) gene family consists of six subfamilies of patterning genes which play a major role in the development of the nervous system and are found only in animals. We looked at their presence and expression ...
  • Girardo, David Orion; Swalla, Billie; Moroz, Leonid; Kohn, Andrea (2012)
    The evolution of the nervous system is poorly understood, with broad implications in basic neuroscience and regenerative medicine. The unintuitive nervous system of the basal Ctenophores provides an insight into neuronal ...
