Maxime Policarpo

I am Maxime, a master 1 student from the Magistere of Genetics at the University of Paris Diderot in Paris. In this Magistere, we study molecular biology but we also study population genetics, evolution, and epigenetics. I did a first internship in Italy last year about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and this year I got the opportunity to come to the Bergelson Laboratory. This internship will be my first time working with the organism Arabidopsis thaliana.
With the supervision of Jacob Herman, the aim of this internship will be to understand epigenetics consequences of pathogen attacks: We will try to find the specifics modifications induced and how are they are passed toMaxime their offspring.
