Abstract

In the last few decades the field of comparative immunology has undergone an enormous amount of progress due to the novel research tools introduced and the expanding amount of transcriptomic information. Recently, the various “omics” approaches have covered every scientific field of biomedical research. Earthworms as ecologically prominent organisms are used in different research areas of biological and environmental sciences. In-depth research on the immune components of earthworms is now showing rapid progress, but the precise molecular data on this “non-classical” model organism are still relatively limited compared to those from “classical” invertebrate model (e.g., Drosophila, Caenorhabditis elegans) species. In fact, earthworm immunity possesses many common characteristics with other invertebrate organisms but also harbors some unique features. In this chapter we briefly summarize our recent findings, concentrating on the cellular components of earthworm immunity applying inhouse-developed monoclonal antibodies. Furthermore, we discuss several fast-advancing scientific fields that rely on different omics data (e.g., transcriptome, epigenome, microbiome, and regenerative biology) and those that are relatively under-represented in invertebrate (earthworm) immunity.
