Our newest paper on a skeleton key for insect olfaction!

Congratulations to Srishti Batra on her newest publication describing a well-known food favoring agent that elicits behavioral and olfactory activity across the Insects. As Srishti notes:  “this known food additive elicits a behavioral response for several insects, including mosquitoes, flies, and cockroaches. A broad-scale behaviorally active molecule non-toxic to humans thus has significant implications for health and agriculture. Coffee furanone serves as a unique tool to unlock molecular, physiological, and behavioral relationships across this diverse receptor family and animal taxa.”
