In order to obtain a complete taxon sampling at generic level for future phylogenetic analyses based on morphological data, it is the goal to generate data from at least one representative of each kinorhynch genus.<br>2) Kinorhynch phylogeny. The kinorhynch interrelationships are examined using a combined approach of molecular and morphological data.<br>3) Further examinations of the putative Loriciferan ? Nematomorph sister-group relationship, using a combined approach of molecular and morphological data.<br>4) Metazoan phylogeny examined within the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.oeb.harvard.edu/faculty/giribet/tol/">AToL</a>&nbsp;(Assembling the protostome Tree of Life) collaborative frame.</p>Primary fields of researchMorphology, taxonomy and phylogeny of Kinorhyncha, Loricifera and Priapulida. In addition, taxonomy and phylogeny of the gnathiferan taxa: Rotifera, Gnathostomulida and Micrognathozoa.
