“Unconventional” posts from #DevMeeting23: Early branching metazoa

Posted by , on 20 September 2023

On Monday we learned a bit about early branching animals, especially the cnidarians. One poster mentioned ongoing work in ctenophores.

Note: I should point out that Nematostella wasn’t the only cnidarian mentioned at the conference. We’ve had representation from Hydra showing us how cell types may have evolved, as well as from Aiptasia teaching us about intracellular host-algal symbiosis.
