Epigenetic pharmacology and RNA-mediated transciptional landscapes

Last year, Vosshall’s group eliminated ideas about the involvement of beneficial mutations in the nutrient-dependent cell type differentiation of mosquitoes. orco mutant mosquitoes lose strong preference for humans and are not repelled by volatile DEET. This year her group showed that nutrient-dependent amino acid substitutions clearly are involved in cell type differentiation.¬†Evolution of mosquito preference Epigenetic pharmacology and RNA-mediated transciptional landscapes
