The transition from unicellular eukaryotes to multicellular animals is arguably among the most profound evolutionary transitions in the history of life. The overall aim of this project is to understand which genetic and developmental mechanisms that made this transition possible.
The development of haddock embryos is highly impacted by oil exposure as discussed in a previous post. In a new study Sørhus et al. explored the link between transcriptional changes and developmental processes such as pattern formation and organogenesis. The question is to understand the abnormal development in fish.
