Recurrent locust population outbreaks have a tremendous impact on ecosystems and economies around the globe. These population outbreaks are associated with a shift from the usual solitary locust phase to a gregarious one. Most molecular research on locusts is focused on uncovering the basis underlying the change to gregariousness. With the increasing availability of ‘omics’ data, the research on this subject is entering a functional testing era. In order to successfully test functionality of a gene o…
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.
