The complete mitochondrial genome of the bag-shelter moth Ochrogaster lunifer (Lepidoptera, Notodontidae)
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of O. lunifer is the first representative of superfamily Noctuoidea that account for about 40% of all described Lepidoptera and shares many features with other known lepidopteran genomes, differs however for its low A+T content and marked C-skew.
The mitochondrial genome of the house centipede scutigera and the monophyly versus paraphyly of myriapods.
TLDR
It is suggested that water-to-land transition occurred at least three times (hexapods, myriapods) during the evolution of the Arthropoda, which would increase to four the main events of land colonization in arthropods (once for centipedes, once for millipedes).
The mitochondrial genome of the ascalaphid owlfly Libelloides macaronius and comparative evolutionary mitochondriomics of neuropterid insects
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of the ascalaphid owlfly Libelloides macaronius is described and compared with the known neuropterid mitochondrial genomes: Megaloptera, Neuroptera and Raphidioptera, and comparative analyses are further extended to other endopterygotan orders.
Gene-associated markers provide tools for tackling illegal fishing and false eco-certification.
TLDR
By using gene-associated single nucleotide polymorphisms, individual marine fish can be assigned back to population of origin with unprecedented high levels of precision, and application of gene- associated markers will likely revolutionize origin assignment and become highly valuable tools for fighting illegal fishing and mislabelling worldwide.
Is It an Ant or a Butterfly? Convergent Evolution in the Mitochondrial Gene Order of Hymenoptera and Lepidoptera
TLDR
This study showed that local and global homoplasies affecting the insect GOs are more widespread than previously thought and the chronological order of the evolutionary events that produced the diversity of the hymenopteran GOs was determined.
Multiple-Locus Sequence Typing and Analysis of Toxin Genes in Bacillus cereus Food-Borne Isolates
TLDR
Describing 47 food-borne isolates of Bacillus cereus using multilocus sequence typing (MLST) indicates that HGT is an important element in shaping the population structure of the B. cereus complex, and investigates the occurrence of toxin-encoding genes, focusing on their evolutionary history within B. Cereus.
Sequence comparison and phylogenetic analysis of fish nodaviruses based on the coat protein gene
TLDR
The results confirm the subdivision of fish nodaviruses into four main clusters, in agreement with the previously suggested phylogeny of the genus Piscinodavirus, that was based on a smaller number of sequences and an alternative phylogenetic approach.
Cloning and sequencing of four new metallothionein genes from Tetrahymena thermophila and T. pigmentosa: evolutionary relationships in Tetrahymena MT family.
TLDR
This analysis revealed two independent events of duplication occurring in Cd- (MT-1 and MTT1) and Cu- ( MT-2) induced MTs, which explains the unusual length of these proteins, which are much longer than many MTs studied so far.
