Carlson's contributions to understanding genetic and molecular mechanisms of insect olfaction are groundbreaking. He discovered genes encoding olfactory receptors in Drosophila, characterized their expression, and systematically defined their odorant specificities. Having unraveled the principles by which insects detect and identify odors, he is now trying to control the malaria mosquito.
