Publications: DNA sequence variation and methylation in an arsenic tolerant earthworm population

Posted on 10 January 2013 by Pete

Dr Kille., Dr. Anderson and Prof. Morgan have published in the journal Soil Biology and Biochemistry with their findings on the effect of arsenic on earthworm epigenetic methylation. Abstract Evidence is emerging that earthworms can evolve tolerance to trace element enriched soils. However, few studies have sought to establish whether such tolerance is determined through adaptation or
