Welcome !

Welcome to the official homepage of the research project “Comparative Population Transcriptomics To Uncover Sex Determination of Aedes albopictus and Phlebotomus perniciosus, Two Emerging Haematophagous Insect Species”.

This is a two years research project supported by the University of Naples Federico II and by the Fondazione San Paolo through the STAR 2013 programme (Sostegno Territoriale alle Attività di Ricerca). The project will be carried out at the Department of Biology of the University of Naples Federico II.

Our project was ranked first out of 88 selected projects and evaluated as “top priority” by the panel of European Science Foundation. It has been funded with € 120K.

According with the rules of the STAR programme the results of the funded pilot study and the national and international networks established during the two years of the present research project will be the basis for an application to an European Research Council Grant Call (ERC Consolidator Grant).

The aim of this web page is to provide up to date information on the progress of the project and on the main results achieved.
