Molecular Basis of Olfaction Synopsis

The scope of this volume of Progress in Molecular Biology and Translational Science includes the molecular regulation of olfactory processes in vertebrates and insects including detailed discussion of olfactory proteins, signaling cascades and olfactory receptor modeling. In addition, because insect olfaction is an important and emerging field, it is also discussed in the context of key research questions such as disruption of host-finding by insect disease vectors, elucidation of the diverse range of compounds that are detected by insects, and the detection of pheromones by moths.

About Richard (D'Estrees Entomology & Science Services) Glatz

Dr Richard Glatz has a broad background in Molecular Biology, Entomology & Ecology. He has worked with industry and government performing scientific research and project management. In 2004, he completed a PhD at The University of Adelaide. That study involved characterisation of molecules employed by wasps to parasitise pest insects by suppressing their immunity. He then undertook post-doctoral research at CSIRO Molecular and Health Technologies developing drug-screening assays for compounds modulating the effect of G-protein-coupled Receptors. From 2006-2013, Dr Glatz was a Senior Research Scientist at SARDI Entomology in South Australia. During this time he played major roles in a series of ...
