• Farewell and congratulations to John Srouji, who leaves us to take up a Research Scientist position at Neon Therapeutics! As the longest-standing member of the lab, we'll miss you!

• Welcome to José Carranza, a visiting student supported by a fellowship from the Peruvian National Council of Science, Technology and Technological Innovation (CONCYTEC).

Carrie's paper on the molecular evolution of gonad-biased genes in mosquitoes is accepted for publication in Genetics. PDF of accepted MS

Carrie's paper on the evolutionary implications of germ cell specifiation mechaimsms is published in PNAS. PDF

Amaneet's paper on the roles of BMP signaling in animal reproductive systems is accepted for publication in Developmental Biology. PDF

• The Evo-Devo-Eco Network (EDEN) NSF Research Coordination Network is over! See the EDEN website for details on this program. You can still join the EDEN network if you wish to be alerted to future EDEN-related projects. Read more in the Harvard Gazette.

Welcome to the Extavour lab. We are a collection of developmental biologists, molecular biologists, geneticists, cell biologists, zoologists, and evolutionary biologists. Our shared interest is in the evolution of the genetic mechanisms employed during early animal embryogenesis to specify cell fate, development and differentiation. We focus primarily on the evolution and development of reproductive systems, including both the germ line and the somatic components of the gonad.
