Biomineralization processes during embryonic development of marine organisms: snails, bivalves and echinoids

Biomineralization processes during embryonic development of marine organisms: snails, bivalves and echinoids

Principal Investigator: Daniel Lyons

This project focuses on studying and comparing key biological and inorganic aspects of shellfish, gastropod and sea urchin biomineralization during embryonal development through the use of advanced materials characterization and proteomics techniques as a basis for furthering the development of a fundamental and comprehensive model of biomineralization.
