Title: Comparative INsect CHRONobiology: Seasonal/circadian biology of aphids.

Research Group: Evolutionary Genetics

The project aims at identifying and characterizing the key elements governing the mode of reproduction in aphids. We are particularly interested in elucidating the molecular basis responsible for the switch from parthenogenesis to sexual reproduction and analyzing what role (if any) play in this process the circadian clock genes.
