I have been a member of Dr. Jonathan Henry’s lab since 2003.  During this time, we have been studying the slipper snail, Crepidula fornicata.  Our primary focus has been on early developmental genes, and more specifically those genes that are involved in axis specification.  Using 454 EST sequencing data, we have focused on cloning and examining the expression profiles of many of these genes in C. fornicata embryos.
