Porras, J. S. Meza, E. G. Rajotte, K. Bourtzis and C. Caceres, Journal of Economic Entomology, 113:2688-2694. 2021.
We present the first evidence that this slower development is due to a different gene, here namely slow development (sd), which is closely linked to the tsl gene. Taking advantage of recombination phenomena between the two loci, we report the isolation of a novel temperature ...
