Each month, Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry hosts the Davis Science Café, featuring scientists who are studying some of today’s cutting edge topics. This month’s guest is Professor Anton Cornel from the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology who studies the genomics of mosquitoes. Invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at G. Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!
Abstract: Our conversation will aim to provide you with interesting information mainly about the diversity of adaptive behaviors of mosquitoes. Behaviors including their mating, breeding and blood and other kinds of feeding will be touched on. The conversation will also include providing some facts about their evolution and systematics, which these days is quite controversial. Preserved specimens will be available for the attendees to look at.
