Vieira, Filipe G.; Forêt, Sylvain; He, Xiaoli; Rozas, Julio; Field, Linda M.; Zhou, Jing-Jiang


Insects are the most diverse group of animals on the planet, comprising over 90% of all metazoan life forms, and have adapted to a wide diversity of ecosystems in nearly all environments. They have evolved highly sensitive chemical senses that are central to their interaction with their environment and to communication between individuals. Understanding the molecular bases of insect olfaction is therefore of great importance from both a basic and applied perspective. Odorant binding proteins...[Show more]
