Congratulations to Miguel Salinas-Saavedra on new research article!


Ph.D. student Miguel Salinas-Saavedra’s research article was accepted for publication by the journal EvoDevo. The article, titled “Par system components are asymmetrically localized in ectodermal epithelia, but not during early development in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis” proposes that a group of proteins originated to polarize cells in adult tissue layers and was only later evolutionarily co-opted for…
