Dr. Leonid Moroz and His Team Published Nature Ecology & Evolution Paper

出版:星期一,2017年10月16日

Congratulations to 快三平台 Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience, Genetics, Biology and Chemistry Leonid Moroz, members of his lab (Peter Williams, Tatiana P. Moroz, Krishanu Mukherjee) and Gustav Pauley from Florida Museum of Natural 历史 for their recent breakthrough paper in Nature Ecology & Evolution titled Ctenophore relationships and their placement as the sister group to all other animals. Comb jellies or Ctenophores are beautiful, highly diverse and enigmatic animals. Novel sequencing and genomic analyses of more than 30 ctenophore species, collected by Moroz and Pauley around the world, provide strong evidence that they are the sister group to all other animals and resolved evolutionary relationships of comb jellies to each other.

莫罗兹开创了自2007年以来比较基因组学和栉水母的转录在他的追求,了解动物和神经元的演变,他一直在收集世界各地的梳果冻;他开始测序他们,先在他的实验室超滤,然后乘坐海洋研究船,用他叫船NGF的方法。因此,他的团队已经从种类涵盖这个神秘的群体内的形态和生活方式的最广泛的多样性聚集独特的遗传数据。

“梳果冻是从其他动物的明显不同,但都是极其脆弱的海洋生物的研究,说:”莫罗兹。 “他们大多只能自然栖息地内进行研究。因此,我们必须找到他们,在海洋上的船舶,样品制作,甚至是序列进行实验,有时数千英里的海上。每一个集合是通过自身的冒险(从南极寒冷热赤道海域),以了解大自然中这些生物从动物的其余部分由肌肉和神经元的独立。一个有趣的工作的神经科学家,和大家,真的!”
