Background The western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), is a globally invasive pest and plant virus vector on a wide array of food, fiber, and ornamental crops. The underlying genetic mechanisms of the processes governing thrips pest and vector biology, feeding behaviors, ecology, and insecticide resistance are largely unknown. To address this gap, we present the F. occidentalis draft genome assembly and official gene set. Results We report on the first genome sequence for… Expand

The genome of Diuraphis noxia, a global aphid pest of small grains
This genome is the second sequenced aphid genome, and the first of a phytotoxic insect, and will provide an important contrast to the A. pisum genome and advance functional and comparative genomics of insects and other organisms. Expand
Biology and Ecology of the Western Flower Thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae): The Making of a Pest
This review addresses questions regarding the biological and ecological attributes of western flower thrips that have enabled it to become a significant pest and make it so difficult to manage. Expand
A model species for agricultural pest genomics: the genome of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
Surprisingly, the suite of genes involved in insecticide resistance is similar to other beetles, and duplications in the RNAi pathway might explain why Leptinotarsa decemlineata has high sensitivity to dsRNA. Expand
The draft genome of whitefly Bemisia tabaci MEAM1, a global crop pest, provides novel insights into virus transmission, host adaptation, and insecticide resistance
The B. tabaci genome contains numerous genetic novelties, including expansions in gene families associated with insecticide resistance, detoxification and virus transmission, as well as numerous horizontally transferred genes from bacteria and fungi. Expand
The genome of Tetranychus urticae reveals herbivorous pest adaptations
The completely sequenced and annotated spider mite genome is presented, representing the first complete chelicerate genome, and finds strong signatures of polyphagy and detoxification in gene families associated with feeding on different hosts and in new gene families acquired by lateral gene transfer.
