Species-wide homogeneity of nuclear ribosomal ITS2 sequences in the spider mite Tetranychus urticae contrasts with extensive mitochondrial COI polymorphism
We compared patterns of intraspecific polymorphism of two markers with contrasted modes of evolution, nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), in the phytophagous mite TetranychusExpand

Mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I in tetranychid mites: a comparison between molecular phylogeny and changes of morphological and life history traits
Spider mites, Tetranychidae, represent one of the most cosmopolitan and economically important groups of terrestrial arthropods; however, many aspects of their evolutionary relationships remainExpand

Biotype status and genetic polymorphism of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) in Greece: mitochondrial DNA and microsatellites
Abstract The genetic polymorphism and the biotype identity of the tobacco whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) have been studied in population samples taken from different localities within GreeceExpand

Direct amplification of length polymorphisms (DALP), or how to get and characterize new genetic markers in many species.
Direct amplification of length polymorphisms (DALP) uses an arbitrarily primed PCR (AP-PCR) to produce genomic fingerprints and to enable sequencing of DNA polymorphisms in virtually any species.Expand

Genetic structure of a greenhouse population of the spider mite Tetranychus urticae: spatio‐temporal analysis with microsatellite markers
The genetic structure of a greenhouse population of the mite Tetranychus urticae was studied by the analysis of five microsatellite loci. Genetic variation was compared during a crop season betweenExpand

Transposable element polymorphism of Wolbachia in the mosquito Culex pipiens: evidence of genetic diversity, superinfection and recombination
Wolbachia is a group of maternally inherited endosymbiotic bacteria that infect and induce cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI) in a wide range of arthropods. In contrast to other species, the mosquitoExpand

Extrachromosomal DNA of the symbiont Sodalis glossinidius.
The extrachromosomal DNA of Sodalis glossinidius from two tsetse fly species was sequenced and contained four circular elements: three plasmids, pSG1 (82 kb), pSG2 (27 kb), and pSG4 (11 kb), and aExpand

Microsatellite sequences are under‐represented in two mite genomes
Microsatellites are known to be a common feature of eukaryote genomes. Here we investigate the presence of microsatellite sequences in the genome of two mite species, Tetranychus urticae andExpand

NOBLAST and JAMBLAST: New Options for BLAST and a Java Application Manager for BLAST results
UNLABELLED NOBLAST (New Options for BLAST) is an open source program that provides a new user-friendly tabular output format for various NCBI BLAST programs without any use of a parser and provides E-value correction in case of use of segmented BLAST database. Expand

DNA sequences and cross‐breeding experiments in the hawthorn spider mite Amphitetranychus viennensis reveal high genetic differentiation between Japanese and French populations
Sequence variation of the complete second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2, 445 bp) of nuclear ribosomal DNA and part of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I gene (COI, 350 bp) was examined inExpand
