Genetic and Genomic approaches for Parasitoid Behavioural Ecology

05-Jun-2008 - 06-Jun-2008

We are very pleased to invite you to Edinburgh this summer for an ESF-funded workshop under the BEPAR framework. The two-day workshop will explore the new tools becoming available to parasitoid behavioural ecologists, focusing in particular on novel genetic and genomic approaches. We will consider the ways in which advances in population genetics and genomic analysis can help us address questions old and new in parasitoid insects, including biological control, life history evolution, interspecific interactions and reproductive decision-making.
