Brief description The apparent state of eternal dormancy has fascinated people for hundreds of years. This project will explore new frontiers in life extension and snail control by defining those genes and peptides involved in snail hypometabolism. To achieve this, the project will interrogate the snails' natural state of hypometabolism called estivation.
