Integrative Biology of Marine Organisms (BIOM) - UMR 7232

The BIOM laboratory's main research is in the mechanisms of development and adaptation of organisms using an evolutionary approach.

The general objective and originality of the project is the use of marine organism models for unconventional studies that are complementary to those performed on more traditional models.

This type of approach has often led to significant advances in various fields of biology to answer basic biological questions.

This uses features from both the diversity of organisms studied, and the profound unity of life that enables comparisons between sometimes very phylogenetically distant organisms.

 

The lab's project is developed around two axes:

  • Continue and extend the work in progress
  • Foster the emergence of one or two new scientific projects

Research activities

Research underway at the Banyuls Marine Station has four themes:

  • Environmental factors and adaptive mechanisms (Jack Falcon)
  • Evolution and development of the chordates (Hector Escriva)
  • Regulation of cellular mechanisms during development (Anne-Marie Geneviève)
  • Environmental genomics and adaptation of phytoplankton (N. Grimsley).
Keywords
