Event Description

Bed Bugs are notorious pests, but recent work has discovered that bed bugs can maintain multiple versions of mitochondria at both an individual and even cellular level. Although this causes diseases within humans, researchers are turning to the vampiric pest to better understand how they survive with this detrimental state. In this RadLab, C. L. will dive into the molecular mechanisms of mitochondrial heteroplasmy, discuss the resulting effects, and attempt to tease apart its evolutionary origins and implications.
