Study of the hybridism in Torymus sinensis and/or in other model species, with regards to behavioural changes in hybrids

Please note that the job is no longer active!

In organisms in which reproductive isolation is linked to behavioural characterics, hybridization experiments represent a method to gather information on the inheritance of courtship signals and on their role in maintaining reproductive isolation between closely related species. Interspecific crosses have been performed in several species of insects with the objective of investigating the inheritance of both courtship signals and parental genomes.

In this case we want to: A) create a hybrid between species X (female) and species Y (male); B) backcross the hybrid with parental species Y for several generations; C) get a population of hybrid origin with: mitochondria of species X, hybrid genome and behavior of species Y; D) monitor the alignment of the courtship signals during the backcrossing sequence; E) monitor the genome during the backcrossing sequence.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
