The Hox-TALE has been wagging for a long time
(2014-03-18) - Journal item,
Hox and TALE proteins interact in a sea anemone, just as they do in flies and mice, indicating that the Hox-TALE system originated very early in animal evolution.
Time is of the essence for ParaHox homeobox gene clustering.
(2013-06) - Journal item,
ParaHox genes, and their evolutionary sisters the Hox genes, are integral to patterning the anterior-posterior axis of most animals. Like the Hox genes, ParaHox genes can be clustered and exhibit the phenomenon of colinearity ...

(2017-01-31) - Journal item,
From 2010 to 2015, a team of scientists studied how the BP Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill affected marine mammals inhabiting the northern Gulf of Mexico, as part of the DWH Natural Resource Damage Assessment process. ...

Tunicates push the limits of animal evo-devo
(2011-01-20) - Journal item,
The phylum to which humans belong, Chordata, takes its name from one of the major shared derived features of the group, the notochord. All chordates have a notochord, at least during embryogenesis, and there is little doubt ...
The origin of the Hox/ParaHox genes, the Ghost Locus hypothesis and the complexity of the first animal
(2016-09-05) - Journal item,
A key aim in evolutionary biology is to deduce ancestral states in order to better understand the evolutionary origins of clades of interest and the diversification process(es) that have elaborated them. These ancestral ...

Extinction is imminent for Mexico’s endemic porpoise unless fishery bycatch is eliminated
(2017-10-12) - Journal item,
The number of Mexico’s endemic porpoise, the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), is collapsing primarily due to bycatch in illegal gillnets set for totoaba (Totoaba macdonaldi), an endangered fish whose swim bladders are exported ...
