Chemosensory neurobiology and evolution

Our group is interested in the genetic, neural and evolutionary basis of sensory perception. As a model, we investigate the chemosensory systems of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, which control many sophisticated behaviours, but are numerically simple and experimentally accessible. We take a multidisciplinary approach, including bioinformatic, genetic, cell biological, electrophysiological, optical imaging, and behavioural analyses.
