Project: Research Project

Project Details


Identification of genes related to a combination of interventions that increase life expectancy in drosophila is a continuation of the project with c. elegans. It will be done as part of the MOLEV research hotbed.

Layman's description

The aim is to identify why organisms live exposed to low temperatures, with food restriction and with a combination of both.


Standardization of culture conditions, training in drosophila management.

Commitments / Obligations

Standardize culture conditions and establish survival curves.
