Functional genomics of the evolution of increased resistance to parasitism in Drosophila.
Individual hosts normally respond to parasite attack by launching an acute immune response (a phenotypic plastic response), while host populations can respond in the longer term by evolving higher level of defence against parasites. Little is known about the genetics of the evolved response: the identity and number of genes involved and whether it involves a pre-activation of the regulatory systems governing the plastic response. We explored these questions by surveying transcriptional change...Expand abstract
