Description

We investigate chemical communication between microbes and insects, namely in Drosophila and codling moth.

Our goal is to identify the microbial volatile metabolites that elicit attraction, feeding and oviposition. We use chemical analysis, electrophysiology and behavioural physiology.

We are looking for postdoc associates to work with (1) the analysis of yeasts and their volatile metabolites, and (2) the identification of dedicated odorant receptors, by single sensillum recordings and wind tunnel assays.
