TitleIdentification of chemosensory genes expressed in legs of nymphalid butterflies
Study TypeOther
Abstract Chemoreception plays a major role in host plant selection by insects. However, genes underlying host selection and host specificity of insects are largely unexplored. To identify the genetic basis of host plant selection, we performed RNA sequencing using four butterfly species of the tribe Nymphali .. [more]
