Parasitoid Wasp Genomes Parasitoid wasps, which prey on and reproduce in host insect species, play important roles in plant herbivore interactions, and may provide valuable tools in the biological control of pest species. The Nasonia Genome Working Group (p. 343; see the news story by Pennisi) presents the genome of three very closely related species: Nasonia vitripennis, N. giraulti, and N. longicornis. The findings document rapid evolution between a host and endosymbiont that can cause… Expand
The genomes of two parasitic wasps that parasitize the diamondback moth
TLDR
Gene families with functions in development, nutrient acquisition from hosts, and metabolism have expanded in each wasp species, while genes required for biosynthesis of some amino acids and steroids have been lost, since these nutrients can be directly obtained from the host. Expand
Genome of the Parasitoid Wasp Diachasma alloeum, an Emerging Model for Ecological Speciation and Transitions to Asexual Reproduction
TLDR
The draft genome assembly of the wasp Diachasma alloeum will provide a valuable resource for comparative genomics studies in Hymenoptera as well as specific investigations into the genomic changes associated with ecological speciation and transitions to asexuality. Expand
Genome of the parasitoid wasp Diachasma alloeum, an emerging model for ecological speciation and transitions to asexual reproduction
TLDR
A draft genome assembly of the wasp Diachasma alloeum is reported, a host-specific parasitoid of the apple maggot fly Rhagoletis pomonella and a developing model for understanding how ecological speciation can “cascade” across trophic levels. Expand
Genomic Resources for Goniozus legneri, Aleochara bilineata and Paykullia maculata, Representing Three Independent Origins of the Parasitoid Lifestyle in Insects
TLDR
Draft genome assemblies for Goniozus legneri, a parasitoid Hymenopteran more closely related to the non-parasitoid wasps and bees than to the Parasitica wasps, and the Coleopteran Parasitoid Aleochara bilineata and the Dipteran parasitoids Paykullia maculata are presented. Expand
Genomic resources for Goniozus legneri, Aleochara bilineata and Paykullia maculata, representing three independent origins of the parasitoid lifestyle in insects
TLDR
Draft genome assemblies for Goniozus legneri, a parasitoid Hymenopteran more closely related to the non-parasitoid wasps and bees than to the parasitica wasps, and the Coleopteran parasIToid Aleochara bilineata and the Dipteran parasitoids Paykullia maculata are presented. Expand
Functional insights from the GC-poor genomes of two aphid parasitoids, Aphidius ervi and Lysiphlebus fabarum
TLDR
Key gene groups including those underlying venom composition, chemosensory perception, and sex determination, as well as potential losses in immune pathway genes are highlighted including missing desaturase genes, whose absence may underlie mimicry in the cuticular hydrocarbon profile of L. fabarum. Expand
Comparative genomics of Steinernema reveals deeply conserved gene regulatory networks
TLDR
It is shown that sets of novel conserved non-coding regulatory motifs are associated with orthologous genes in Steinernema and Caenorhabditis involved in neurogenesis and embryonic development that are likely part of conserved protein–DNA relationships shared between these two genera. Expand
The genetic basis of interspecies host preference differences in the model parasitoid Nasonia
TLDR
It is shown that a major locus strongly influences host preference in Nasonia, the first introgressed of the host preference of one parasitoid species into another, as well as one of the few cases of introgression of a behavioral gene between species. Expand
Phylogenomics of Ichneumonoidea (Hymenoptera) and implications for evolution of mode of parasitism and viral endogenization
TLDR
The data suggest many transitions between parasitoid life history traits across the whole superfamily, including two subfamilies within Ichneumonidae that have polydnaviruses that are supported as distantly related, providing strong evidence for two independent acquisitions of ichnoviruses. Expand
Functional insights from the GC-poor genomes of two aphid parasitoids, Aphidius ervi and Lysiphlebus fabarum
TLDR
The de novo genome assemblies, detailed annotation, and comparative analysis of two closely related parasitoid wasps that target pest aphids provide a strong foundation for further functional studies including coevolution with respect to their hosts, the basis of successful infection, and biocontrol.

The parasitoid wasp Nasonia: an emerging model system with haploid male genetics.
TLDR
The Nasonia genome project provides a wealth of interspecies polymorphisms to facilitate positional cloning of genes involved in species differences in behavior, morphology, and development and opens a path for improvement of parasitoid insects as agents of pest control. Expand
The genetic basis of interspecies host preference differences in the model parasitoid Nasonia
TLDR
It is shown that a major locus strongly influences host preference in Nasonia, the first introgressed of the host preference of one parasitoid species into another, as well as one of the few cases of introgression of a behavioral gene between species. Expand
Recombination and Its Impact on the Genome of the Haplodiploid Parasitoid Wasp Nasonia
TLDR
The results imply that the genomes of haplodiploid and of diploid higher eukaryotes do not differ systematically in their recombination rates and associated parameters, consistent with the hypothesis that recombination reduces interference between linked sites and thereby facilitates adaptive evolution and the purging of deleterious mutations. Expand
Behavioral and genetic characteristics of a new species of Nasonia
TLDR
An important characteristic of N. oneida is the strong mate discrimination shown by the females against all the other Nasonia species, and a genetic analysis of this phenotype by interspecies hybridization indicates that this strong discriminating phenotype is recessive. Expand
The distribution of microsatellites in the Nasonia parasitoid wasp genome
TLDR
The results show that the overall microsatellite density in Nasonia is comparable to that of the honey bee, but much higher than in eight non‐Hymenopteran arthropods, and dinucleotides are the most abundant repeat type in all four species of Hymenoptera studied. Expand
Insights into social insects from the genome of the honeybee Apis mellifera
TLDR
The genome sequence of the honeybee Apis mellifera is reported, suggesting a novel African origin for the species A. melliferA and insights into whether Africanized bees spread throughout the New World via hybridization or displacement. Expand
Evolution of the Yellow/Major Royal Jelly Protein family and the emergence of social behavior in honey bees.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the MRJP family is encoded by nine genes arranged in an approximately 60-kb tandem array, and it appears that MRJP protein subfamily evolution from the Yellow protein family may have coincided with the evolution of honey bee eusociality. Expand
Rapidly evolving mitochondrial genome and directional selection in mitochondrial genes in the parasitic wasp nasonia (hymenoptera: pteromalidae).
TLDR
It is proposed that relatively high rates of amino acid substitution in some mitochondrial genes can be driven by a "Compensation-Draft Feedback"; increased fixation of mildly deleterious mutations results in selection for compensatory mutations, which lead to fixation of additional deleteriously mutations in nonrecombining mitochondrial genomes, thus accelerating the process of amino acids substitutions. Expand
The insect chemoreceptor superfamily of the parasitoid jewel wasp Nasonia vitripennis
TLDR
Nasonia does not have the elaborate social chemical communication of honey bees, nor the diversity of floral odours honey bees detect, however, Nasonia wasps might need to detect a diversity of odours to find potential mates and hosts or avoid harmful substances in its environment. Expand
HYBRID BREAKDOWN BETWEEN TWO HAPLODIPLOID SPECIES: THE ROLE OF NUCLEAR AND CYTOPLASMIC GENES.
TLDR
Experiments clearly demonstrate that the latter incompatibility is not due to maternal-effect genes, but to cytoplasmically inherited elements, supporting the view that hybrid lethality genes tend to be recessive. Expand
