How does nutrition alter infection and ageing? How does maternal nutrition alter infection and ageing in offspring? What epigenetic factors do mothers communicate to offspring?

Experimental evolution of the nematode C. elegans, and experimental infections of the crustacean Daphnia are used to address these questions.
