Dr. William Browne, Associate Professor, will present a seminar entitled "Insights from the Genome of an Ancient Metazoan Lineage: The Ctenaphora" for the University of Miami's Department of Biology Monday, April 22, 2013 from 12:20pm-1:20pm in the Cox Science Center, Room 166. Dr. Browne's lab focuses on patterns of change underlying organismal diversity. In addition to recent work on explaining patterns of diversity in one of the major constituents of oceanic zooplankton, the Browne lab has had an active role in using the very recently sequenced genome of the pelagic ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi to attempt to address aspects of a central problem faced by biologists attempting to understand metazoan biological diversity. How is a relatively static genome, shared by all cells within an individual, able to confer a range of differentiated cell types?
