Genomic tools for behavioural ecologists to understand repeatable individual differences in behaviour [Nature Ecology & Evolution]

Keywords : behavioural ecology, behavioural genetics, genomics

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

Behaviour is a key interface between an animal’s genome and its environment. Repeatable individual differences in behaviour have been extensively documented in animals, but the molecular underpinnings of behavioural variation among individuals within natural populations remain largely unknown. Here, we offer a critical review of when molecular techniques may yield new insights, and we provide specific guidance on how and whether the latest tools available are appropriate given different resources, system and organismal constraints, and experimental designs.(...)
