Welcome to The Lab of Amir Sagi
Professor Amir Sagi began studying crustaceans during grad school. Since then he has become a world renown specialist in crustaceans physiology.
We study functional genomics of crustacean physiology and developed numerous biotechnological applications.
What do we study?
- The IAG-switch sex differentiating mechanism in crustacean reproduction
- Functional genomics in crustacean physiology
- Crustaceans’ growth, physiology and biomineralization
- Crustaceans as biocontrol agents over disease-carrying snails
