Robinson, Katie L.; Tohidi-Esfahani, Donya; Lo, Nathan; Simpson, Stephen J.; Sword, Gregory A.

Description

The importance of DNA methylation in mammalian and plant systems is well established. In recent years there has been renewed interest in DNA methylation in insects. Accumulating evidence, both from mammals and insects, points towards an emerging role for DNA methylation in the regulation of phenotypic plasticity. The migratory locust (Locusta migratoria) is a model organism for the study of phenotypic plasticity. Despite this, there is little information available about the degree to which the...[Show more]
