Population genetics of reproductive dormancy in Drosophila

Published on
September 18, 2018

After improving our understanding of the physiological basis of reproductive dormancy in Drosophila, we proceeded to the genetic analysis of the trait. We used (Pool-GWAS) to identify the genetic variants contributing to dormancy in a natural Drosophila population. We have already identified some promising gene candidates, which we will validate through a functional analysis.
