The scope of this volume ofProgress in Molecular Biology and Translational Scienceincludes the molecular regulation of olfactory processes in vertebrates and insects including detailed discussion of olfactory proteins, signaling cascades and olfactory receptor modeling. In addition, because insect olfaction is an important and emerging field, it is also discussed in the context of key research questions such as disruption of host-finding by insect disease vectors, elucidation of the diverse range of compounds that are detected by insects, and the detection of pheromones by moths.

  • Comprehensive coverage of molecular processes in olfaction of vertebrates and insects
  • Focus on the emerging field of insect olfaction
  • Contributions by leading research groups in their fields, from a range of countries
  • Discusses fundamental knowledge and also key applications being addressed by the research
Dr Richard Glatz has a broad background in Molecular Biology, Entomology & Ecology. He has worked with industry and government performing scientific research and project management.In 2004, he completed a PhD at The University of Adelaide. That study involved characterisation of molecules employed by wasps to parasitise pest insects by...
