Abstract

Energy allocation is believed to drive trade-offs in life history evolution. We develop a physiological and genetic model of energy allocation that drives evolution of feeding rate in a well-studied model system. In a variety of stressful environments Drosophila larvae adapt by altering...read more

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.

Parasite Genetics

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Energy Homeostasis in Feeding

Feeding behavior is a fundamental aspect of energy homeostasis, the process by which body's fuel is stored in the form of adipose tissue and is held constant over long intervals. Signals of energy homeostasis interact closely with neural circuits of motivation to control food intake. Discover the latest research on energy homeostasis in eating here.
