  • The 18S ribosomal RNA genes of 19 insect species, including 12 Holometabola, were cloned and sequenced. The genes of the insect species investigated so far vary in length from 1,809 to 3,316 bp. The genes were aligned according to the secondary structure model of the 18S ribosomal RNA. An average of 1,580 aligned nucleotide positions per gene was used for the calculation of phylogenetic trees with sequences of this and previous studies. Neighbor-joining trees were calculated with gamma… CONTINUE READING
