Here will write about what is going on in our recently founded NFR project “InvertOmics – Phylogeny and evolution of lophotrochozoan invertebrates based on genomic data (Researcher Project – FRIPRO)”.

Further below we also have a new category, where we will present a group of interesting invertebrates each month. Stay tuned when we being in February.

Our team consists of:

Alberto Gracia-Valero, James Fleming, Stian Aleksander Helsem, Lee Hsiang Liow, Lutz Bachmann and Torsten H. Struck at the NHM of UiO
