One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century is to bridge the gap from single molecules to behavior. This challenge requires a comprehensive and integrative approach, well beyond the scope of isolated research teams. It also requires the use of organisms in which the genetic underpinnings of brain function and behavior can be teased apart efficiently and in an unbiased manner. We have created a singular environment that fosters innovative neuroscience research through the integration of multiple levels of analysis in conventional invertebrate models such as Drosophila and C. elegans, as well as in unconventional models like the monarch butterfly.
