Deep sequencing of Cotesia vestalis bracovirus reveals the complexity of a polydnavirus genome.
TLDR
Comparison of CvBV with other PDVs shows that more segments are found, including new segments that have no corresponding segments in other phylogenetically related PDVs, which suggests that there might be still more segments not being sequenced in the present known PDVs. Expand
Comparative mitogenomics of Braconidae (Insecta: Hymenoptera) and the phylogenetic utility of mitochondrial genomes with special reference to Holometabolous insects
TLDR
Comparative studies indicate that mitochondrial genomes are a useful phylogenetic tool at the ordinal level within Holometabola, at the superfamily within Hymenoptera and at the subfamily level within Braconidae, suggesting that the utility of mitochondrial genomes is likely to be a valuable tool for systematics in other groups of arthropods. Expand
New Views on Strand Asymmetry in Insect Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
It is shown that deaminations during replication and other mutations contribute more than selection on amino acid sequences to strand compositions of G and C, and that the replication process has a stronger affect on A and T content than does transcription. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta (Busck) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
A microsatellite sequence was inserted into the region of H2347 in rrnL in G. molesta and two other sequenced tortricid mitochondrial genomes, indicating that the insertion event in this helix might occurred anciently in family Tortricidae. Expand
Genetic Structure and Demographic History Reveal Migration of the Diamondback Moth Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) from the Southern to Northern Regions of China
TLDR
It is strongly demonstrated that the diamondback moth migrates within China from the southern to northern regions with rare effective migration in the reverse direction, providing a successful example of using population genetic approaches to resolve the seasonal migration of insects. Expand
Comparative analyses of the complete mitochondrial genomes of Ascaris lumbricoides and Ascaris suum from humans and pigs.
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome data are sequenced and provide some additional genetic evidence that A. lumbricoides and A. suum may represent the same species of ascaridoid. Expand
Complete mitogenome of the Argyrogramma agnata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the silver looper moth Argyrogramma agnata (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) is determined and the tRNA gene trnM was rearranged to the upstream of trnI- trnQ-trnM cluster compared with the pupative ancestral arrangement of insects. Expand
Comparative and phylogenetic analysis of the mitochondrial genomes in basal hymenopterans
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the mitochondrial genomes in the Symphyta was conducted by describing two newly sequenced ones, representing the first mitochondrial genome in family Cimbicidae, and Asiemphytus rufocephalus, from family Tenthredinidae, showing a biased usage of A and T rather than G and C. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogenomics of the Hymenoptera.
TLDR
D divergence time analysis indicates that major hymenopteran lineages originated in the Mesozoic, and the radiation of early apocritans may have been triggered by the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction; all extant families were present by the Cretaceous. Expand
Gene arrangement and sequence of mitochondrial genomes yield insights into the phylogeny and evolution of bees and sphecid wasps (Hymenoptera: Apoidea).
TLDR
This study showed that both gene sequences and arrangements provide information on the phylogeny of apoid families, and supported the known paraphyly of sphecid wasps, with bees nested within this clade. Expand
