  • The project aims to evaluate the diversity of diatoms living along the Calabrian coast that are able to produce dormancy stages, to investigate the factors that trigger their formation, to identify the secondary metabolites involved in the dormancy stages formation, to identify the metabolic pathways involved in the synthesis of secondary metabolites needed to enter in the dormancy and to test the possible epigenetic mechanisms involved in the transition from vegetative cells to dormancy stages. The selected candidate will be in charge of inducing the transition from a vegetative stage to a dormant stage of the selected species, prepare large cultures, extract DNA and RNA for the sequencing of the relative transcriptome and epigenome, evaluate the gene expression of the metabolic pathways of interest.
