Abstract

'Everything you always wanted to know about sex' is a workshop organized as part of the annual Drosophila Research Conference of the Genetics Society of America. This workshop provides an intellectual venue for interaction among research groups that study sexual dimorphism from the molecular, evolutionary, genomic, and behavioral perspectives. The speakers summarize the key ideas behind their research for people working in other fields, outline unsolved questions, and offer their opinions about future directions. The 2010 workshop highlighted the power of the Drosophila model for understanding sexual dimorphism at levels ranging from cell biology and gene regulation to population genetics and genome evolution, and demonstrated the importance of cross-disciplinary interactions in the study of sex. In this respect, Drosophila sets a good example for research in other organisms, including humans and their mammalian relatives.
