The Genes that Drive Insect Diversity

Figure: (A) Comparison of the large adult male whole body phenotypes of GFP RNAi control animal (left) and dachshund RNAi animal (right). Control animal did not show any defect compare to wildtype animals, while dachshund RNAi showed defect phenotype in appendages including legs, antennae and mandibles. (B) Magnified image of mandibles of GFP RNAi control animal (left) and dachshund RNAi animal (right). RNAi of dachshund gene affected both of mandible size and shape. Credit: Hiroki Gotoh
