    Department of Genetics, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina 27695, USA
    BMC Genomics 14:281. 2013
    ..Sleep is a highly conserved behavior, yet its duration and pattern vary extensively among species and between individuals within species. The genetic basis of natural variation in sleep remains unknown...

    Genetics 166:1807-23. 2004
    ..However, we also found genes with cell fate specification and cell proliferation phenotypes, which implies that resource allocation during development and at the cellular level may also influence the phenotypic response to starvation...
