    A main adaptive advantage of social insects is their ability to concurrently probe multiple locations while gathering information over scales that are much larger than that of a single individual. Collecting information is, however, only the first step since information fragments must be fused to yield collective action. This information aggregation process is far from trivial and can teach us about the tensions between individual and group and how these might be resolved in an effective manner. This talk will discuss several examples for such tensions and their resolution in the context of cooperative transport by longhorn crazy ants: collectively accumulated information vs. updated individual information, large scale information required for effective action vs. small scale information available to individuals, and group level consensus from conflicting individual information. All these examples point towards information collection and aggregation schemes that utilize the advantages of large groups without compromising the valuable information gathered by each individual.

    In C.elegans nematodes small RNAs enable transmission of epigenetic responses across multiple generations. The mechanism that allows small RNA inheritance in the germline is being elucidated, and multiple factors, which are needed for this type of epigenetic inheritance per se have been identified. Different environmental conditions, including exposure to viruses, starvation, and heat stress generate heritable small RNA responses. It is still unclear whether endogenous small RNAs, similarly to exogenous small RNAs, can move between cells, and from the soma to the germline (breaching the “Weismann barrier, and allowing inheritance). We are interested in the provocative possibility that heritable small RNA responses can alter the progeny’s behavior, by altering the function of the worm’s nervous system. I the seminar I will discuss our recent findings, ideas, and theories.
