- Identification of an aggression-promoting pheromone and its receptor neurons in DrosophilaLiming Wang
Division of Biology 216 76, California Institute of Technology, 1200 East California Boulevard, Pasadena, California 91125, USA
Nature 463:227-31. 2010..Identification of a pheromone-OSN pair controlling aggression in a genetic organism opens the way to unravelling the neurobiology of this evolutionarily conserved behaviour...
- Hierarchical chemosensory regulation of male-male social interactions in DrosophilaLiming Wang
Division of Biology, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, USA
Nat Neurosci 14:757-62. 2011..Thus, male social behaviors are controlled by gustatory pheromones that promote aggression and suppress courtship, and whose influences are dominant to olfactory pheromones that enhance these behaviors...
- Automated monitoring and analysis of social behavior in DrosophilaHeiko Dankert
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA
Nat Methods 6:297-303. 2009..Ethograms may be constructed automatically from these measurements, saving considerable time and effort. This technology should enable large-scale screens for genes and neural circuits controlling courtship and aggression...

Division of Biology 216 76 and Engineering and Applied Sciences 136 93 and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91125, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:5657-63. 2008..Cyp6a20 is expressed in a subset of nonneuronal support cells associated with pheromone-sensing olfactory sensilla, suggesting that social experience may influence aggressiveness by regulating pheromone sensitivity...
