First, huge congrats to @LeahHouri, @GuyTeichman and Hila Gingold!! It’s a pleasure to see lab members work so well in a team. (2/13)πŸ‘‡
Some background: In C.elegans nematodes, transgenerational RNAi typically lasts for 3-5 generations. This was shown by Rosa M. Alcazar et al. (Andrew Fire’s lab) many years ago (3/13)πŸ‘‡

πŸ’₯πŸŽ‰ FINALLY! Our paper is out! πŸ’₯πŸŽ‰ @CellCellPress We discovered that the nervous system of C.elegans transmits information via small RNAs across multiple generations to control the behavior of the progeny. A thread πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡(1/17) #molecularmemories

First, I’d like to congratulate @rlipo2 & @Toker_IA the amazing PhD students that led the work. This was an multi-person extreme effort, many years of very hard work. This beautiful illustration was drawn by Beata Edyta Mierzwa @beatascienceart (2/17) πŸ‘‡
Many have speculated, ever since antiquity, that brain activity could
somehow generate heritable changes that would impact the fate of the next
generations. But transgenerational epigenetic inheritance is still extremely controversial, especially in mammals. (3/17)πŸ‘‡
