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[…]

PhD position: Single-cell elucidation of the evolution of an embryonic transcriptional programme

Posted by on April 3rd, 2018

The project: Single-cell approaches are revolutionizing developmental biology. We can now  trace in time the behavior of each cell in a live developing organism (1). In parallel, single-cell transcriptomics and genomics gives access to the transcriptional state of each cell (2). Combination of these two approaches promises to unravel how genomic information translates into individual[…]

The Tails of Fate

Posted by on January 18th, 2018

The epic journey of embryogenesis begins with a set of maternal instructions. These instructions are in the form of transcribed mRNA, some even translated into proteins and ready for action. However, many of the critical maternal mRNAs are inactive and must be delivered to the right cell and activated at the right time to encode[…]
