Ancestral diet leads to dynamic transgenerational plasticity for five generations in Drosophila melanogaster

Preprint OPEN
Mikheyev, Alexander; Emborski, Carmen;

Ancestral exposures can influence phenotypic expression in subsequent generations, which influence diverse biological processes ranging from phenotypic plasticity to obesity. Currently, most transgenerational studies work under the assumption of transgenerational respon... View more
