Cold adaption in plants and animals

Many organisms tolerate sub-zero temperature by either avoiding or tolerating freezing. Antarctic organisms are at one extreme. However, many temperate and alpine creatures are also affected by freezing. We are interested in the mechanisms that are responsible for such tolerance. In particular, we are interested in the genes and proteins that are expressed in response to low temperatures.
