Dr.  Linda Holland

Position

Research Biologist

Research Description

My long-term goal is to understand how vertebrates evolved from their invertebrate ancestors. To this end, we use the cephalochordate amphioxus (Branchiostoma) as a model for the common ancestor of amphioxus and vertebrates. To date, our studies of developmental genetics in amphioxus have given insights into evolution of vertebrate-specific structures such as neural crest and into evolution of the gastrula organizer among others.
