Diapause

Many organisms have a dormant stage in which they shut down activities such as locomotion, and develop tolerance against adverse conditions. The best-known example of life-cycle dormancy is the phenomenon of diapause in insects with seasonal phenologies. Depending on the species, diapause may apply to the egg, larva, pupa, or adult. Are there specific gene-expression patterns characteristic of diapause stages? Surprisingly, this question can only be answered in a rudimentary sense.
