Epigenetic control of behavioural plasticity in the honey bee

Lockett, Gabrielle

Description

A remarkable capacity of animals is to respond in a highly plastic manner to the world around them. For a long time it was largely unknown what within the cell drives the creation and persistence of these plastic responses. Epigenetic processes such as DNA methylation and histone acetylation could be part of the story, as these marks on the genome are reversible but can also be highly stable. Some insects exhibit dramatic phenotypic plasticity, a seminal illustration of which is the epigenetic...[Show more]
