Session 3: Making of Platynereis into a Model Organism.

(Leslie Pan, Arendt’s lab, EMBL)


The Arendt group is interested in the evolution of central nervous system in bilateral animals. With sequencing technologies becoming more accessible, we have built extensive genomics resources that has allowed us to dive deeper into cell type evolution. Leslie will introduce different published and unpublished works from the group, and how we leveraged the different sequencing technologies.

1. Assembling the genome of a highly heterozygous worm

2. Single cell transcriptomes for cross species comparison

3. In field genotyping/sequencing for species identification

15:15 – 16:15

Session 6: Wet lab consultations.

(Laura Villacorta, Leslie Pan, Jonathan Landry)
