Laboratory of Chemical Ecology
Welcome to the Dweck lab in the Department of Entomology at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES).
We employ a multidisciplinary approach, including:
chemical analysis (e.g. Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS))
electrophysiology (e.g., Single Sensillum Recording (SSR))
gene editing (e.g., CRISPR)
