We are interested in the origin and evolution of hormone systems. Central to our work is the exploration of a novel invertebrate model system, Platynereis dumerilii. Our past work has shown that this marine worm exhibits a unique combination of ancestral-type genomic characteristics not found in insect and nematode model species. Moreover, we have identified numerous components of ancestral-type hormone pathways in Platynereis. Therefore, Platynereis is
