THESIS SUBJECT:
Epigenetic and environmental response in Crassotrea gigas.
Epigenetic in Biomphalaria glabrata, intermediar host of Schistosoma mansoni parasite
KEY WORDS:
evolution, adaptation, non genetic heredity, molluscs, epigenetic
THESIS PROJECT:
The life story of an individual influences his phenotype and that of its offspring. The two components, genetic and epigenetic and their interactions are important to generate these heritable phenotypes. The heritability of these phenotypes may allow parents to transmit to their offspring a better ability to adapt to rapid changes in the local environment.
The aim of the PhD project is to investigate the influence of holders of epigenetic information in molluscs both in the immune response of the snail Biomphalaria glabrata to its parasite Schistosoma mansoni and under the environmental impact of oysters on its own phenotype and that of its offspring following stimulation of the immune system during their early stages of development.
Finally, epigenetic mechanisms have been well characterized in vertebrates, but their role in invertebrates, particularly in molluscs remains enigmatic, this project aims to better characterize the role of epigenetic in these species.
