Synthetic autocrine systems for insects (2021-2024).

This project aims to generate large-scale data on vinegar fly and desert locust 7TM receptors, which together with advanced neurophysiology and behavioral data, will be used to train computational models to predict insect behavior in diverse environments, recommend sustainable environmental actions for controlling insect behavior and develop advanced microbial insect foods acting as “autocrine” systems in insects for controlling insect behavior.

People involved in CAB/CRCA: G. Theraulaz, R. Escobedo.

Project funded by Novo Nordisk Foundation (Exploratory Interdisciplinary Synergy Programme). Collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Biosustain) and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology (Department of Evolutionary Neuroethology).
