Project title: Identification of genes responsible for regulation of intra-specific differences on lifespan of social insects            

Summary: My aim is identifying genes responsible for differences on lifespan across some species of social insects. For this, I’ll be looking at intra-specific differences on gene expression and splicing patterns within species and then searching for orthologous between species, by using NGS, RNAseq and up to date bioinformatics tools and software for molecular biology analysis.
