Zeroing in on genes involved in courtship song variation in Laupala crickets

OmicsBox Supported Project. Researchers: Hayden Waller, Cornell University, USA Background and Project Overview: One of the primary outcomes of speciation – the formation of new species – is the generation of pre-mating barriers that prevent or greatly reduce gene flow. Behavioral changes are perhaps the most potent in the early stages of speciation. In particular, the divergent evolution of sexual
