Comparative Genomics of Non-Model Invertebrates


Ksenia Juravel
Ksenia Juravel is working on ESR Project 1: Phylogenomics of non-bilaterian animals under the supersvision of Prof Gert Wörheide at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Her research topic is the phylogenetic relationships among non-bilaterian animals and more precisely the prediction of the basal lineages organization, necessary to unde... show more
Ramon Rivera
Ramon Rivera is working on ESR Project 2: Comparative genomics of sponge holobionts under the supervision of Prof. Gert Wörheide at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. A holobiont is a meta-organism that consists of a host and its associated symbionts, frequently microbes - humans are a good example with their gut microbes. It is increasingly appreciated ... show more
