Male and Female Mating Pheromones in Panagrellus redivivus
Nematodes are the most abundant animal on earth, and they live in virtually every ecological niche on earth. Parasitic species have a significant health and economic impact through the infection of crops, domestic animals, and humans. Therefore, we are working to unravel the chemical language used by nematodes, with the ultimate goals of better understanding the role of small molecules in regulating behavior and of developing new approaches to control nematode parasites.
