New publication in PLoS One

January 01, 2020

The velvet belly lanternshark is a small deep-sea shark commonly found in the Eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea. This bioluminescent species is able to emit a blue-green ventral glow used in counter-illumination camouflage, mainly. In this study, next generation sequencing technology has been employed to generate transcriptome data from eye and ventral skin tissues of the lanternshark and investigate opsin-based photoreception. 

This is a collaborative work with the laboratory of Prof. Jérôme Mallefet from UCL.

Help us to get the sea-cucumber genome sequenced by PacBio!

March 10, 2019

Our laboratory has been pre-selected for a competition aiming at obtaining a high-quality genome of one of our biological models: the sea cucumber! Five other species are still racing with us but there can be only one winner! Whoever gets the most public votes by wins! :-) If you agree, as well as voting for the H. scabragenome, you could also promote it in your networks!

  •     You can vote for the sea cucumber genome project on https://pacb.com/vote!

  •     Public voting until Friday, March 15, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. PDT  

  •     One vote per valid email address will be allowed


Thank you!

Best Poster Award at the 20th International Symposium on Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence

June 25, 2018

I recently got the Best Poster Award at the International Symposium on Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence in Nantes. The price was awarded by RFI LUMOMAT. This "bright" conference brings together the international leading experts of the Bioluminescence field... I presented a poster on brittle star bioluminescence and I was also selected for a spotlight presentation.

Quelli che s’innamoran di
pratica sanza scienzia son come
’l nocchier ch’entra in navilio
senza timone o bussola, che mai
ha certezza dove si vada.

theory is like a sailor going aboard a
ship without rudder or compass and
having no idea where he is going.)
