Researchers at the National University of Singapore have identified the gene transcription factors in butterflies that give rise to their different color patterns on the top and bottom sides of their wings.
New research identifies the genetic code by which butterflies assign color patterns to different parts of their wings
By Viviane Callier One of evolution’s oldest tricks is to apply old genetic building blocks at new times or places in development to create a new structure. But that isn’t […]
A funny thing happened on the way to testing the CpomOR1 odorant receptor. Researchers at the USDA-Agricultural Research Service conducted an experiment on codling moth (Cydia pomonella) using the CRISPR/Cas9 […]
An international research team has successfully mapped the genome of the bed bug (Cimex lectularius) to get a better understanding of its genetic makeup. The findings — by researchers from […]
