His results provide new insights into the dynamics and mechanistic traces of miRNA expression on miRNA mediated regulation during embryogenesis. They contribute to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie effects that are induced by gamma radiation induced effects on early transcriptomes, both after direct exposure and after transfer of deviating transcription patterns from parent fish to offspring.
