Detection of Volatile Indicators of Illicit Substances by the Olfactory Receptors of Drosophila melanogaster

Abstract

Insects can detect a large range of odors with a numerically simple olfactory system that delivers high sensitivity and accurate discrimination. Therefore, insect olfactory receptors hold great promise as biosensors for detection of volatile organic chemicals in a range of applications. The array of olfactory receptor neurons of Drosophila melanogaster is… (More)
