Tomeu has recently been preserved as part of a bid to be included in the Sanger Institute’s iconic 25 Genomes project, which would potentially help to uncover the DNA blueprint for these sinistral snails.
The main part of this study was funded by a BBSRC studentship to Paul Richards, with additional funding from a BBSRC grant, the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science, the Genetics Society, and the Daiwa Foundation.
The study also found evidence of this in their genetic make-up For many years, dextral (right-coiling) Euhadra aomoriensis and sinistral (left-coiling) Euhadra quaesita were believed to be two separate species because their mirror-image anatomy was thought to make it impossible for them to mate.
However, the researchers found that the snails are sometimes able to twist their genitals into an appropriate position, and so mate in a normal face-to-face position.
In the future, the researchers would like to use the same methods to find the genes that make the snails mirror images, which may have implications for understanding the development of other animals, including ourselves.
