Marie Saglio, Ph.D.



After a master's in research in genomics and evolutionary genetics, I did my PhD at the Institute of Biology of Ecole Normal Supérieure (IBENS) in Paris, under the supervision of Marie-Anne Félix. 

Working with my favorite Caenorhabditis elegans wild strains, I studied different modes of heredity, genetic and non-genetic, the interplay between the two, and their role in evolution. Overall, I showed that multigenerational non-genetic memory is modulated by genetic variation.

Aiming to dive into the molecular mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance, I am starting a postdoctoral fellowship in the Cecere laboratory. I will follow wild strains with their naturally associated bacteria to explore the transmission of small RNAs across generations during adaptation processes in the laboratory.
