    • The embryoid development of Strigamia maritima and its bearing on post-embryonic segmentation of geophilomorph centipedes 

      Brena, Carlo (BioMed Central, 2014-08-13)
      Background Many arthropods add body segments post-embryonically, including most of the myriapods. However, geophilomorph and scolopendromorph centipedes are epimorphic, i.e. they form all their segments during embryonic ...
    • The first myriapod genome sequence reveals conservative arthropod gene content and genome organisation in the centipede Strigamia maritima 

      Chipman, Ariel D; Ferrier, David EK; Brena, Carlo; Qu, Jiaxin; Hughes, Daniel ST; Schröder, Reinhard; Torres-­Oliva, Montserrat et al. (PLOS, 2014)
      Myriapods (e.g., centipedes and millipedes) display a simple homonomous body plan relative to other arthropods. All members of the class are terrestrial, but they attained terrestriality independently of insects. Myriapoda ...
    • Six3 demarcates the anterior-most developing brain region in bilaterian animals 

      Steinmetz, Patrick RH; Urbach, Rolf; Posnien, Nico; Eriksson, Joakim; Kostyuchenko, Roman P; Brena, Carlo; Guy, Keren et al. (2010-12-29)
      Abstract Background The heads of annelids (earthworms, polychaetes, and others) and arthropods (insects, myriapods, spiders, and others) and the arthropod-related onychophorans (velvet worms) show similar brain architecture ...
