This work is intended to develop a technique to analyse the population structure of aphids at a high resolution, particularly that of eusocial aphids which produce sterile soldier castes and that of gall-forming species in which interesting interclonal interactions have been identified. Takema Fukatsu, a graduate student of the University of Tokyo, is studying the evolution of endosymbiosis in aphids from morphological, histological and molecular biological points of view, and is now preparing a doctoral thesis along these lines. He is also interested in the biology of eusocial aphids. Professor Hajime Ishikawa is organizing a laboratory at the Zoological Institute, University of Tokyo, to investigate molecular mechanisms of intracellular symbiosis in aphids.
