Our systematic use of non-classical models and combining different fields, from Evolutionary and Developmental Biology (Evo-Devo) to ecology and clinical genetics, is unique. All our projects combine a wide array of multidisciplinary research tools at various levels of biological organization, ranging from whole organisms to molecules. We are part of the Finnish Society for Developmental Biology and Helsinki Evo-Devo community.
