Richard Fandino Postdoctoral Student Dr. Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology Jena, Thueringen Germany rfandino@ice.mpg.de

Areas of Expertise:
Molecular Biology

Research Organisms:
Manduca sexta

 

Research Focus:

My interest is mainly focused on the evolution of gene regulation and expression in chemosensory genes and the role these play in odor-guided behavior of insects. My post-doctoral studies are focused on establishing the ecological model, the sphinx moth, Manduca sexta as a feasible molecular model for receptor / odorant interactions.
