We report a draft sequence for the genome of the domesticated silkworm (Bombyx mori), covering 90.9% of all known silkworm genes. Our estimated gene count is 18,510, which exceeds the 13,379 genes reported for Drosophila melanogaster. Comparative analyses to fruitfly, mosquito, spider, and butterfly reveal both similarities and differences in gene content. 

Topics from this paper

From genome to proteome: great progress in the domesticated silkworm (Bombyx mori L.).
TLDR
This paper reviews the progress of the domesticated silkworm genome, particularly focusing on its genetic map, physical map and functional genome and presents proteomics, the proteomic technique and its application in silkworm research. Expand
A history of chromosome identification in Bombyx mori
TLDR
The research histories for the first B. mori karyotype and its contribution for chromosome science and comparative genomics in Lepidoptera are reviewed. Expand
Analysis of cytochrome P450 genes in silkworm genome (Bombyx mori)
TLDR
A comparative genomic analysis with Drosophila melanogaster reveals that the two insects have some similar P450 distribution patterns but still have some obvious differences. Expand
Transcriptome Analysis of the Silkworm (Bombyx mori) by High-Throughput RNA Sequencing
TLDR
This is the first study to elucidate the silkworm transcriptome using high-throughput paired-end RNA sequencing technology and indicates that the transcriptome of silkworm is much more complex than previously anticipated. Expand
Comparison of transcriptome analysis between silk gland of B. mori and B. mandarina using next generation sequencing
TLDR
Two valuable genetic off-line databases related to silk synthesis of wild silkworm B. mandarina are built using comparative transcriptional studies between B.Mandarina and B. mori on the NGS platform. Expand
Advances in silkworm studies accelerated by the genome sequencing of Bombyx mori.
TLDR
The new and exciting progress and discoveries that have been made in B. mori during the past 10 years include the construction of a fine genome sequence and a genetic variation map, the evolution of genomes, the advent of functional genomics, the genetic basis of silk production, metamorphic development, immune response, and the advances in genetic manipulation. Expand
Microarray-based gene expression profiles in multiple tissues of the domesticated silkworm, Bombyx mori
TLDR
A genome-wide microarray was designed and constructed with 22,987 70-mer oligonucleotides covering the presently known and predicted genes in the silkworm genome, and surveyed the gene expression in multiple silkworm tissues on day 3 of the fifth instar. Expand
A Second-Generation Integrated Map of the Silkworm Reveals Synteny and Conserved Gene Order Between Lepidopteran Insects
TLDR
A second-generation linkage map was constructed for the silkworm, Bombyx mori, and found significant synteny and conserved gene order between B. mori and a nymphalid butterfly, Heliconius melpomene, in four linkage groups (LGs), strongly suggesting that using B.mori as a reference for comparative genomics in Lepidotera is highly feasible. Expand
Resistance comparison of domesticated silkworm (Bombyx mori L.) and wild silkworm (Bombyx mandarina M.) to phoxim insecticide
TLDR
The results showed that in the early larval stages, the resistance difference to phoxim was not significant between the two species, however, in the 4 th and 5 th instar, this difference was significant. Expand
Genome sequence of the Japanese oak silk moth, Antheraea yamamai: the first draft genome in the family Saturniidae
TLDR
The genome sequence of A. yamamai is presented, the first genome sequences of the wild silk moth, to help enrich the understanding of the molecular mechanisms relating to not only specific phenotypes such as wild silk itself but also the genomic evolution of Saturniidae. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of the WGS data revealed that the silkworm genome contains many repetitive sequences with an average length of <500 bp, which suggests that silkworm may have an active mechanism that promotes removal of transposons from the genome. Expand
A Draft Sequence of the Rice Genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica)
TLDR
A draft sequence of the rice genome for the most widely cultivated subspecies in China, Oryza sativa L. ssp.indica, by whole-genome shotgun sequencing is produced, with a large proportion of rice genes with no recognizable homologs due to a gradient in the GC content of rice coding sequences. Expand
Construction and characterization of bacterial artificial chromosome libraries from the silkworm, Bombyx mori
TLDR
Results show that it is possible to construct contigs and analyze chromosome organization using these libraries, and revealed novel information about the chromosomal organization of the sericin-1 and DH-PBAN genes, which were localized within a 22-kb interval and are divergently oriented. Expand

TLDR
Two methods, subtraction and normalization, are checked to increase coverage and decrease the number of housekeeping genes, resulting in a 5–11% increase of library-specific ESTs. Expand
Mining single nucleotide polymorphisms from EST data of silkworm, Bombyx mori, inbred strain Dazao.
TLDR
This analysis shows that expressed sequences from multiple libraries may provide an abundant source of comparative reads to mine for cSNPs from the silkworm genome. Expand
The genome sequence of Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of nearly all of the approximately 120-megabase euchromatic portion of the Drosophila genome is determined using a whole-genome shotgun sequencing strategy supported by extensive clone-based sequence and a high-quality bacterial artificial chromosome physical map. Expand
Comparative genomics of the eukaryotes.
TLDR
The fly has orthologs to 177 of the 289 human disease genes examined and provides the foundation for rapid analysis of some of the basic processes involved in human disease. Expand
Functional and phylogenetic analyses of a putative Drosophila melanogaster UDP-glycosyltransferase gene.
TLDR
DmUgt37a1 was expressed in lepidopteran insect cells and the ability of the enzyme to conjugate 38 potential substrates belonging to diverse chemical groups was assessed using UDP-glucose as sugar-donor, however, no activity was detected with any compound under the conditions used and thus, the substrate specificity of the enzymes remains unknown.

Absence of dosage compensation at the transcription level of a sex-linked gene in a female heterogametic insect, Bombyx mori
TLDR
Three RAPDs and one RFLP marker investigated suggest that sex-linked genes in the silkworm are not dosage compensated. Expand

TLDR
The PSG genes as well as the Ser-1 gene, differing in structure, exhibit a striking degree of homology of their 5' flanking sequences, which suggests the presence of common regulatory mechanisms. Expand
