New Views on Strand Asymmetry in Insect Mitochondrial Genomes
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.
Deep sequencing of Cotesia vestalis bracovirus reveals the complexity of a polydnavirus genome.
Comparative mitogenomics of Braconidae (Insecta: Hymenoptera) and the phylogenetic utility of mitochondrial genomes with special reference to Holometabolous insects
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.

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.
Comparative analyses of the complete mitochondrial genomes of Ascaris lumbricoides and Ascaris suum from humans and pigs.

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.
Comparative and phylogenetic analysis of the mitochondrial genomes in basal hymenopterans
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.

Utility of Multi-Gene Loci for Forensic Species Diagnosis of Blowflies
The utility of five gene segments was explored among blowfly species from two distinct geographic regions, China and Pakistan, and demonstrate a universal utility of these gene segments in the molecular identification of flies of forensic importance.
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Galba pervia (Gastropoda: Mollusca), an Intermediate Host Snail of Fasciola spp
The novel mtDNA data provide additional genetic markers for studying the epidemiology, population genetics and phylogeographics of freshwater snails, as well as for understanding interplay between the intermediate snail hosts and the intra-mollusca stages of Fasciola spp.
