How can we make wasps, mosquitos and locusts survive LONG DISTANCE space travel ?
Diapause is an amazing adaptation to survive harsh weather conditions. We will perform experiments to artificially induce diapause and compare the differences among different neopolyploids. We will also see the transcriptome for d ...

Proximity labeling in Arabidopsis to identify protein-protein interactions related to aphid and potyvirus resistance
Background: Aphids are major crop pests causing direct feeding damage and additionally vector plant pathogens including potyviruses. The current set of aphid management measures is insufficient, raising the need for new sustainab ...

Biological control on tomato plants lacking type VI trichomes - NEW
Tomato plants are typically covered in glandular trichomes: sticky hairs that inhibit small pest species. However, these plant hairs also harm beneficial arthropods. Because of this, only a few biological control agents provide su ...

Why does it taste so different? Exploring the neural basis of life-stage dependent taste perception in butterflies
In the Large cabbage white butterfly (Pieris brassicae), the gustatory system plays an important role in both the larval and adult stage. Yet, cues can have different meanings depending on the life stage. For example, when a cater ...

Mosquitoes as syringes. Xeno-diagnosis with blood fed mosquitoes
Several traps are available to trap mosquitoes and thereby monitor vectors of diseases like malaria, dengue and Zika. However, these traps do not catch blood-fed mosquitoes. Blood-fed mosquitoes are especially interesting because ...

Mosquito radar: unravelling mosquito ecology through a citizen science approach
We launched a citizen science approach (Muggenradar, www.muggenradar.nl) with the aim to better understand the ecology of Dutch mosquitoes. We aim to understand spatial and temporal patterns in mosquito nuisance and abundance. We ...
