Cladoceran daphnids are among the most widely chosen aquatic invertebrates for ecotoxicology, since early 1900s. The use Daphnia bioassays in monitoring water quality is due a number of reasons, such as daphnid sensitivity to chemicals and their easy culturing, and because they are important members of aquatic food chains. The genome sequence accessibility of Daphnia pulex (first crustacean to have a sequenced genome) has expanded to explore broad-ranging biological disciplines, including host-parasite interactions, and evolution, physiology, microbiology, molecular biology, pathology, and genetics. Genetic screening allows identify genes underlying that function within a biological process and/or pathway of interest for humans. This review attempts to relate the use of Daphnia model in the prospect of human health effects. To date this research is still in its infancy but there are good approaches that could be satisfactory to find this relationship.
