A pest with potential

A scourge to many in agriculture, flour beetles in the genus Tribolium may be the best model system you’re not using. Join PhD student Michael Pointer, Prof. Matthew Gage and Dr Lewis Spurgin (University of East Anglia) as they discuss the importance of Tribolium beetles across a remarkable range of research fields… and their great untapped potential as a model system in evolution and ecology.

 

In this episode we explore the recent Heredity review: “Tribolium beetles as a model system in evolution and ecology” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41437-021-00420-1
