Abstract Longchuanacris curvifurculus (L. curvifurculus) was once a dominating grasshopper in the Yunnan province (People’s Republic of China) that occupy important ecological niche. However, its population has severely declined because of the deterioration of ecological environment. Identifying the species and source of L. curvifurculus is important for biodiversity conservation and ecological/environmental preservation. In the study, the complete mitochondrial genome of L. curvifurculus was…

Phylogenetic position of the genera Caryandoides, Paratoacris, Fer and Longchuanacris (Orthoptera : Acrididae) revealed by complete mitogenome sequences
The results show that the four controversial genera were consistently assigned to the subfamily Oxyinae rather than Catantopinae in all phylogenetic trees deduced from different datasets under different frameworks, and this finding is entirely consistent with their morphological characters.


A Comparative Analysis of Mitochondrial Genomes in Orthoptera (Arthropoda: lnsecta) and Genome Descriptions of Three Grasshopper Species
In this study, the comparative analysis of the stem-loop secondary structure in A+T-rich region of all Orthoptera species available to date is stressed, and new findings are reported which may facilitate further investigation and better understanding of this secondary structure.

Assembly by Reduced Complexity (ARC): a hybrid approach for targeted assembly of homologous sequences
Assembly by Reduced Complexity is presented, a hybrid mapping and assembly approach for targeted assembly of homologous sequences that is able to assemble high quality, unbiased mitochondrial genomes seeded from 11 progressively divergent references and full mitochondrial genomes starting from short, poor quality ancient DNA reads.
Trimmomatic: a flexible trimmer for Illumina sequence data
Timmomatic is developed as a more flexible and efficient preprocessing tool, which could correctly handle paired-end data and is shown to produce output that is at least competitive with, and in many cases superior to, that produced by other tools, in all scenarios tested.
