PhD project in Southern France: quantitative analysis of developmental variability in ascidian embryos

Posted by on April 1st, 2019

Applicants are sought for two 3-year doctoral contracts to work on developmental variability and canalization in Ascidians. Context:   Within each animal species, embryonic development is highly reproducible, ensuring the production of a complex organism with precisely arranged and shaped organs and tissues. This constancy of embryogenesis against genetic polymorphism and fluctuating environmental conditions is[…]
