Wasp sex in Angewandte Chemie
Today our first collaborative paper with the Gries and Britton groups was published in Angewandte Chemie, describing the discovery of the first sex attractant in Vespid insects. Congratulations to joint first authors Weiwu, Cat and Nathan on what we hope will be the first of many joint projects in this area. This was a fascinating project, requiring detailed and careful work in the areas of chemical ecology, analytical chemistry and synthesis. A perfect example of interdisciplinary research at SFU!
