Genetic control of sexual dimorphic traits in the parasitoid wasp genus Nasonia
In most insect orders, the genetic sex determination cascade is a well conserved mechanism and involves a series of female-specific splicing events leading to the transcription of female or male specific isoforms of the Doublesex  ...

Health and Immunology of Black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens
The project is a part of NWO-project INSECTFEED (https://insectfeed.nl/). Insect production is part of an integrated food production system that aims to attain zero waste and preservation of natural resources. The current project  ...

Brain morphogenesis in a parasitoid model species: genes regulating parasitoid olfaction
Have you ever wondered how insects use their brain; or whether they possess a brain after all? How do insects find and recognize their significant other? In the next academic year (starting September/October) you have the oppo ...

Hermetia illucens larval behaviour : Attraction to social cues in Hermetia illucens larvae exposed to stress factors
This project is part of the INSECTFEED consortium (www.insectfeed.nl). This consortium is aiming for a sustainable and circular approach to the poultry feed industry. Insects such as BSF can convert low quality waste streams into  ...

Insect Ethology and Physiology: what chemical cues are recognized as danger signal?
Natural enemy avoidance is a precondition for insects to survive and establish their population in natural environment. Olfaction is one of the most important methods to protect themselves against natural enemies in insects. Recen ...

BSc-thesis: Enhancing the success of Trichogramma in greenhouse gerbera crops (literature study)
This project is mostly suitable as a BSc-thesis, but could be prolonged into a MSc-thesis. It is a literature study (no experimental work involved). Chrysodeixis chalcites (Tomato Looper/Golden twin-spot moth) is one of the key ...

Investigating recruitment of microorganisms by the plant to defend itself against insect herbivores
Insect feeding causes major crop losses every year. Therefore, it is of high importance to develop sustainable pest management strategies to be able to produce healthy and safe food. Through millions of years of evolution, plants  ...

Investigating an age-induced resistance mechanism in sugar beet plants against aphids
Mature Plant Resistance (MPR) is an age-induced resistance mechanism in sugar beet plants against aphids. Aphids are the vector species of multiple sugar beet-infecting viruses, which result in yield losses up to 50%. With this pr ...

Conservation Biological Control of a Coffee pest
The worldwide sustainability of coffee production is threatened by pests, diseases, and global warming. In Colombia, the Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) is a major pest problem. This beetle reduces crop yield and quality by drilling the  ...

“Glow-in-the-dark plants” to visualize insect-plant interactions
An exciting way to study insect-plant interactions is by engineering luminescent plants. Luminescence is spontaneous emission of light due to a chemical reaction. You can create glowing plants by genetic transformation with a lumi ...
