ipelines. A biomethane industry along the Central Valley's heavily traveled highways 5 and 99 could serve as the infrastructure for future "hydrogen highways," providing a renewable fuel for cars and trucks. Dried manure fibers could also be burned in biomass power plants. An economically lucrative biomass-to-energy system works best with co-generation digesters that receive and digest energy-rich waste streams that then become utilities supplying an increasingly urbanized California.

Presentation: Olfactory Molecular Targets for Reverse Chemical Ecology
Presenter: Walter Leal, UC Davis Department of Entomology
Date and time: Monday, Feb. 21, 9:45 a.m.
Location: 145B Washington Convention Center
Symposium: Chemically Speaking: How Organisms Talk to Each Other

With current technologies, it takes about 10 years and approximately $30 million to bring to market a new repellent for mosquitoes, which transmit devastating diseases such as malaria, dengue and West Nile virus. Hoping to decrease the time and money needed to develop new mosquito repellents, the Walter Leal lab has looked beyond the rich genome of the mosquito to the fruit fly genome. An abundance of information is already available about fruit fly olfactory receptor neurons, which play an important role in the sense of smell and are key to developing insect repellents. The research by Leal and colleagues has yielded a wealth of information about fruit fly receptivity to a variety of repellents, including DEET, and has led to new techniques that should prove valuable in screening candidate mosquito repellent compounds in the early stages of research and development.
