Identifying the ripples of gene regulation evolution in the evolution of gene sequences to determine when animal nervous systems evolved

Project description

The evolution of gene regulation

Differential gene expression during embryogenesis drives cell differentiation and determines animal development. The coordinated expression of genes is intrinsically complex in nature and is controlled by genes linked to each other through regulatory interactions. The precise function and evolution of these gene regulatory networks remain unclear despite their central role in animal development. The EU-funded RipGEESE project brings together three European research institutions and through a multidisciplinary approach aims to address this knowledge gap from a molecular and phylogenetic perspective. The knowledge generated will unravel unprecedented aspects of the phenotypic diversity encountered in the animal kingdom.
