Seminar: A major gene controls mimicry and crypsis in butterflies and moths

nicola-nadeauThe Department of Genetics and Evolutions will host Dr Nicola Nadeau from the University of Sheffield, who will present a seminar entitled “A major gene controls mimicry and crypsis in butterflies and moths”

Title: A major gene controls mimicry and crypsis in butterflies and moths
When: 12 noon, Friday Septermber 9, 2016
Where: Seminar Room 5.01, Level 5, Molecular Life Sciences Building, University of Adelaide


My research has largely been directed towards identifying genes underlying adaptive evolution. I will talk about my work identifying genes responsible for colour pattern switches in the extremely colourful and variable Heliconius butterflies, including ongoing work on finding genes controlling iridescent structural colour in these butterflies.

Please contact Simon Baxter if you would like to meet with Dr Nicola Nadeau:
