Quantitative trait loci (QTL) for thermotolerance were previously identified for adult flies in several mapping populations of Drosophila melanogaster Meigen (Diptera: Drosophilidae) in the laboratory. However, laboratory assays may not necessarily reflect the performance under heat stress in the field. For instance, do the heat‐resistance QTL regions in the field match the QTL for thermotolerance in laboratory studies? To address this and related questions we used a set of recombinant inbred lines (…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
