Whole-genome analysis of the transcriptional network underlying male sexual behaviour in Drosophila melanogaster

Abstract:

The robust behavioural courtship ritual displayed by Drosophila melanogaster males is governed by their underlying nervous system (NS). Two key genes of the Sex Determination Hierarchy, fruitless (fru) and doublesex (dsx), determine most neuronal substrates for sexual behaviour. In this study we aim to better understand the role fru plays in determining these neural substrates, as a means of better understanding the relationships between brain, behaviour and genes, and thus how the develop...
