CAPTURING SIGNALING PATTERNS THROUGH GLOBAL PHOSPHORYLATION PROFILING AND INTRACELLULAR FLOW CYTOMETRY

SHARESHARESHARE
Signals are given in contexts such as mate selection by females, which subjects the advertising males' signals to selective pressure. Signals thus evolve because they modify the behaviour of the receiver to benefit the signaller. Signals may be honest, conveying information which usefully increases the fitness of the receiver, or dishonest. An individual can cheat by giving a dishonest signal, which might briefly benefit that signaller, at the risk of undermining the signalling system for the whole population.
