Microfluidic monitoring of the growth of individual hyphae in confined environments

Anne Le Goff, Claire Baranger & Antoine Fayeulle
Soil fungi have the ability to form large mycelial networks. They rely on the resources available in the soil to produce biomass, and are able to degrade complex biomolecules. Some of them can even degrade recalcitrant organic pollutants and are considered promising candidates for soil bioremediation strategies. However, the success of this approach depends on the ability of fungi to colonize the soil matrix, where they encounter spatial and temporal variations of confinement, humidity and...

Kings and queens of eusocial termites can live for decades, while queens sustain a nearly maximal fertility. To investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying their long lifespan, we carried out transcriptomics, lipidomics and metabolomics in Macrotermes natalensis on sterile short-lived workers, long-lived kings and five stages spanning twenty years of adult queen maturation. Reproductives share gene expression differences from workers in agreement with a reduction of several aging-related processes, involving upregulation of DNA damage repair and...
