Transcriptional changes associated with nutrient impact on Zooplankton

Advisor:
Andreas Heyland (IB)

We are interested in understanding the transcriptional changes associated with nutrient impact on Zooplankton. We study this using Daphnia whole genome transcriptomes to assess the response of this important zooplankton to experimental manipulations of nutrient impact, relevant to natural conditions. The project involves analyzing the Daphnia transcriptomes and associate them with experimental manipulations.
