Deep sequencing reveals complex mechanisms of diapause preparation in the invasive mosquito, Aedes albopictus.


Seasonal environments present fundamental physiological challenges to a wide range of insects. Many temperate insects surmount the exigencies of winter by undergoing photoperiodic diapause, in which photoperiod provides a token cue that initiates an alternative developmental programme leading to dormancy. Pre-diapause is a crucial preparatory phase of this… (More)
