Virus discovery - The biology of tick-specific viruses.
A new virus has been discovered in ticks. However, we don't know anything about the nature of this virus. Does it interfere with the transmission of other viruses such as tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV)? Does it affect the be ...

Field experiment: Indirect interactions between insect herbivores and pollinators
When we think of plant reproduction and plant fitness, we often think of seeds. However, for a bisexual plant such as Brassica rapa this is only half of its reproductive pathway. It’s often referred to as maternal or fema ...

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  ...

Parasitoids, Pheromones & Genes: Unraveling Nasonia pheromone-producing pathways
Have you ever wondered how pheromones are produced? How can insect species evolve new pheromones? Pheromones are produced through conserved biosynthetic pathways. Variations in these pathways can lead to new metabolites and nov ...

Parasitoids, Pheromones & Receptors: Pheromone perception in Nasonia wasps
Pheromones are chemicals that have evolved in a sender to trigger a specific response in the receiver. Pheromones are perceived through highly sensitive receptors on the insect's antennae. Activating these receptors triggers a ...

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 ...

Fluorescent microscopy and the bacterial endosymbionts of aphids
Aim: To visualize the locations of bacterial endosymbionts living in aphid tissues. Aphids are problematic pests. Biological control of aphids is not always successful. One possible explanation of the insufficient success of bio ...

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 ...
