Chemical Senses: From Genes to Perception
Organizer(s): Peter Mombaerts and Leslie B. Vosshall
Date: January 21 - 25, 2007
Location: Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, UT, USA
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
The chemical senses - taste and smell - have been revolutionized by molecular biology since Buck and Axel's discovery of odorant receptors in 1991. We have now a nearly complete description of the repertoires of chemosensory receptor genes in several vertebrate and invertebrate species. The enormous and exciting task faced by the field is how chemosensory circuits develop and how the mature brain perceives tastes and smells. A solution of these problems will require integrative and comparative approaches. Receptor-driven perspectives are rapidly taking over from more traditional analyses. We propose an integrative meeting about research on taste, smell and pheromones, in vertebrate and invertebrate systems, using imaging, modeling, molecular biology, genomics, physiology, and developmental studies.
