About this book

The importance of molecular approaches for comparative biology and the rapid development of new molecular tools is unprecedented. The extraordinary molecular progress belies the need for understanding the development and basic biology of whole organisms. Vigorous international efforts to train the next generation of experimental biologists must combine both levels – next-generation molecular approaches and traditional organismal biology. This book provides cutting-edge chapters regarding the growing list of marine model organisms. Access to and practical advice on these model organisms have become a conditio sine qua non for a modern education of advanced undergraduate students, graduate students and postdocs working on marine model systems. Model organisms are not only tools they are also bridges between fields – from behaviour, development and physiology to functional genomics.

Key Features
- Offers deep insights into cutting-edge model system science
- Provides in-depth overviews of all prominent marine model organisms
- Illustrates challenging experimental approaches to model system research
- Serves as a reference book also for next-generation functional genomics applications
- Fills an urgent need for students

Bernd Schierwater is a Director ITZ and Professor of Zoology, TiHo University Hannover, Germany. He received his PhD (special honours degree summa cum laude) from Technical University Braunschweig (TUB), Germany in 1989. He was a Distinguished Sabbatical Scholar at NESCent, Duke University. He was awarded Senior Ecologist of the Ecological Society of America (2009). His training in evolutionary and ecological genetics has arisen from running laboratories at Frankfurt University (Assistant Professor), Freiberg University (Associate Professor) and Hannover TiHo University (Full Professor) and from working as a Research Associate in different departments at Yale University and also at the AMNH New York (Rob DeSalle lab). He has developed the most primitive metazoan animals, the placozoans, into an emerging model system for next-generation biodiversity and cancer research.
