Research Theme

BRH performs studies on evolution and development of organisms, and the study of how to spread science throughout society. The following themes are carried out in six research groups. The staff and other BRH members including Dr. Keiko Nakamura (Director General) and researchers work together in supervising graduate students.

Molecular bases of organismal diversity

Relationships between diversity of animal-specific gene families and the Cambrian explosion.

Phylogeny and evolution

(i) molecular phylogeny and evolution of insects including other arthropods; (ii) mutualism and co-evolution between figs and fig wasps.

Evolution of developmental programs and cell structure/function

Experimental study using the Drosophila and spider models.

Insect's feeding preference and speciation

Molecular mechanism of the host plant selection of swallowtail butterflies.

Vertebrate body patterning

How does the well-patterned morphology is generated in terms of ontogeny and phylogeny?

Science communication and production

Presenting and sharing biological research among many people.
