We are interested in the origin and evolution of hormone systems and stem cell mechanisms. Central to our work is the exploration of invertebrate model species in key phyla. One of these is the marine annelid worm Platynereis dumerilii. Our past work has shown that this 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
