Congratulations to Choose Development! mentor Mariana Wolfner of Cornell University on being awarded the Genetics Society of America Medal for her work on reproduction! "Wolfner and her colleagues have identified proteins in the seminal fluid of fruit flies that are transmitted to female flies during mating, manipulating the females’ physiology and behavior. This work has had important implications for our understanding of evolution and sexual conflict as well as the regulation of reproduction in all animals."
Wolfner mentored Choose Development! Fellow Chris Wilson last summer. He made a video about his research in her lab.
