Abstract Cryptolestes ferrugineus (Stephens, 1831) is an important insect pest of stored products. Due to its broad host range, short life cycle, and high reproductive capacity, this species has rapidly colonized temperate and tropical regions around the world. In this study, we isolated 18 novel polymorphic microsatellite loci from an enriched genomic library based on a biotin/streptavidin capture protocol. These loci will be useful tool to better understand the genetic structure and migration…

Microsatellite markers for Rhyzopertha dominica (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae)
19 novel polymorphic microsatellite loci are isolated from an enriched genomic library based on a biotin/streptavidin capture protocol and will provide a valuable resource for studying the population genetic structure of this species.
Population structure of the expansive wasp spider (Argiope bruennichi) at the edge of its range
The high dispersal ability of the wasp spider appears to have facilitated high gene flow among populations, and the peripheral and recently settled populations were characterized by the highest heterozygosity and the lowest inbreeding coefficient (FIS).
Reference gene selection to determine differences in mitochondrial gene expressions in phosphine-susceptible and phosphine-resistant strains of Cryptolestes ferrugineus, using qRT-PCR
The results suggest that alterations in the expressions of these three genes may be associated with phosphine resistance in C. ferrugineus, as three mitochondrial genes (nad3, atp6 and cob) were significantly down-regulated.
Transcriptome Analysis and Identification of Major Detoxification Gene Families and Insecticide Targets in Grapholita Molesta (Busck) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
The comprehensive transcriptome data set has permitted us to identify members of important gene families related to detoxification in G. molesta, including 77 unigenes of putative cytochrome P450s, 28 of glutathione S-transferases, 46 of Carboxylesterases, and 31 of insecticide targets.
Trans-anethole is a potent toxic fumigant that partially inhibits rusty grain beetle (Cryptolestes ferrugineus) acetylcholinesterase activity
Abstract The safe storage and protection of grain includes the exploitation of plant-based fumigants as a green control technology. This study first determined the fumigant toxicity of 12 traditional


Polymorphic microsatellite markers in Thrips hawaiiensis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)
11 novel polymorphic microsatellite loci from an enriched genomic library based on a biotin/streptavidin capture protocol showed that all 11 loci were highly polymorphic and have potential utility in population structure and gene flow studies of T. hawaiiensis.
Microsatellite Markers Reveal Population Structure and Low Gene Flow Among Collections of Bactrocera cucurbitae (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Asia
The results of clustering, migration analyses, and Mantel test, strongly suggest that the regional structure observed may be due to geographical factors such as mountains, rivers, and islands.
Polymorphic microsatellite markers in the guava fruit fly, Bactrocera correcta (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Twelve microsatellite loci were isolated from an enriched genomic library based on a biotin/streptavidin capture protocol and have potential utility for studies of population genetic structure in this species.
Genetic structure and dispersal patterns of the invasive psocid Liposcelis decolor (Pearman) in Australian grain storage systems
This study supports a hypothesis of long distance dispersal by L. decolor populations from Australia and a single international population from Kansas, USA to determine patterns of dispersal and suggests that IBD does not describe the pattern of gene flow among populations.
Genetic Monitoring of Western Corn Rootworm (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) Populations on a Microgeographic Scale
The temporal genetic monitoring undertaken allowed a deeper understanding of the population genetics of western corn rootworm in Croatia, neighboring Serbia, and its geographic source in the United States.
Eleven polymorphic microsatellite markers for Oedaleus decorus (Orthoptera, Acrididae), an endangered grasshopper in Central Europe
Eleven microsatellite loci are isolated and characterized in the grasshopper Oedaleus decorus, an endangered species in Central Europe, and suitable for further conservation genetic studies of O. decorus.
Isolation and characterization of the first microsatellite loci from the order Psocoptera in the economically important pest insect Liposcelis decolor (Pearman) and cross-species amplification
A total of 11 microsatellite loci from the invasive insect pest Liposcelis decolor were isolated and characterized of which six loci were polymorphic, highlighting the utility of these loci in further population genetic studies.

Construction and comparative analysis of enriched microsatellite library from Liposcelis bostrychophila and L. entomophila genome
Microsatellite-enriched libraries of L.bostrychophila and L.entomophila were constructed utilizing methodologies that exploit the strong affinity between biotin and streptavidin, revealing that the microsatellite sequences exist in multiple copies in the psocid genome.
Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellite markers in Zabrotes subfasciatus Boheman (Coleoptera: Bruchidae)
Six polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized for the bruchid Z. sylvestris and revealed that three loci amplified successfully and were polymorphic in this closely related species.
