Life-span control in Drosophila melanogaster

Post by Phil Baber » Sun Dec 02, 2007 11:45 pm


My name is Phil Baber. I'm currently investigating the question into of life-span control in Drosophila melanogaster from an evolutionary perspective: What are the principal genes
regulating life-span in D. melanogaster, and under what selection pressures do they fall?

Does anybody know of any papers that may be of interest to me?

Your school or local library may have access to online databases such as JSTOR, which would probably have plenty of data. Otherwise, a Google scholar search may yield you something.
