Five microsatellite loci are presented for Helicoverpa armigera. These microsatellite loci were obtained through the construction of enriched libraries, overcoming previously reported difficulties with obtaining microsatellites from H. armigera and other Lepidoptera due to the low frequency of microsatellites in their genomes. The description of a further five microsatellite loci for H. armigera makes microsatellite based population genetics studies feasible. 
Cross-species investigation of Helicoverpa armigera microsatellites as potential markers for other related species in the Helicoverpa - Heliothis complex
Primers previously designed to amplify microsatellite DNA markers in the Old World bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera, larvae were tested in three closely related species: the corn earworm, HelicoverpaExpand

Is there genetic structure in populations of Helicoverpa armigera from Australia?
Recent studies suggest that populations of the pest moth Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) may be genetically differentiated over short distances and time periods withinExpand
Genetic variation among Helicoverpa armigera populations as assessed by microsatellites: a cautionary tale about accurate allele scoring
The results highlight potential problems of automated scoring systems when these are not checked carefully in management of H. armigera and the development of area-wide control options, as populations need to be considered as one panmictic unit. Expand
Cross-species amplification and polymorphism of microsatellite loci in Helicoverpa armigera and Helicoverpa zea (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in Brazilian cropping systems.
These SSR loci will be valuable in characterizing population differentiation, invasion routes, adaptation, reproductive behavior, and intra- and interspecific gene flow in H. armigera and H. zea populations in Brazil, the USA, and other areas where these two pests occur. Expand
Microsatellite markers for genetic studies of the fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda.
These markers will be useful for molecular ecology studies of this highly polyphagous species in order to understand the processes that determine genetic differentiation in the complex agro-ecosystems that it infests and improve local integrated pest management practices. Expand

Genetic diversity of fruit borer, Helicoverpa armigera (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) based on random amplified polymorphic DNA- polymerase chain reaction
The genetic variability of Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) at different agroecological zones of Bangladesh in comparison with Indian population was conducted in India during September 2008 to February 2009 and showed that H. armigersa population from Bangladesh had 25 to 45 percent similarity, and in its Indian population the similarity remained within this range.

First Microsatellites from Sesamia inferens (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
30 polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed and characterized by fast isolation by amplified fragment length polymorphism of sequences containing repeats (FIASCO), and it is concluded that the microsatellites described herein will be useful in studying population genetics within S. inferens.
