During my PhD project funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin I am working on the early development of the woodlouse Porcellio scaber to identify further details in the for malacostracan typical cell division pattern (grid pattern induced by stem cell like ectoteloblasts). Therefore I use different methods like live imaging and micromanipulation or several staining protocols on fixed embryos to analyze the development starting with the gastrulation to the point of formation, appearance and cell division of the ectoteloblasts.
