Whitney Laboratory’s Elaine Seaver Publishes Review in Current Opinion in Genetics and Development
Dr. Elaine Seaver, professor of biology at Whitney Laboratory, recently published a mini-review highlighting current research with her main study organism, Capitella teleta. This piece was an invited review for the journal Current Opinion in Genetics and Development, and Elaine was asked because of her expertise and research on the development and regeneration of Capitella, a small, segmented worm that burrows in estuarine mud. The article is included as part of a special issue that highlights animals used in developmental genetics research, including marine animals such as slipper snails, ascidians, ctenophores, sponges and others. Congratulations, Elaine!
