Manduca sexta, known as the tobacco hornworm or Carolina sphinx moth, is a lepidopteran insect that is used extensively as a model system for research in insect biochemistry, physiology, neurobiology, development, and immunity. One important benefit of this species as an experimental model is its extremely large size, reaching more than 10 g in the larval stage. M. sexta larvae feed on solanaceous plants and thus must tolerate a substantial challenge from plant allelochemicals, including… Expand

TLDR
A draft assembly of the T. ni genome is reported, with 90.6% of all bases assigned to one of its 28 chromosomes and predicted 14,037 predicted protein-coding genes. Expand
The oriental fruit moth genome provides insights into evolutionary adaptation of tortricid pests
TLDR
The results indicate that the high number of some detoxification and receptor genes may be related to the strong adaptation of the oriental fruit moth as a global pest. Expand
An analysis of 67 RNA-seq datasets from various tissues at different stages of a model insect, Manduca sexta
TLDR
A thorough analysis of the 67 RNA-seq datasets to characterize new genomic features of M. sexta shows integrated knowledge of gene functions and expression features will facilitate future functional studies in this biochemical model insect. Expand

Chromosome‐level genome of the peach fruit moth Carposina sasakii (Lepidoptera: Carposinidae) provides a resource for evolutionary studies on moths
The peach fruit moth (PFM), Carposina sasakii Matsumura, is a major phytophagous orchard pest widely distributed across Northeast Asia. Here, we report the chromosome‐level genome for the PFM,Expand
Genomic adaptation to polyphagy and insecticides in a major East Asian noctuid pest
TLDR
The gene families encoding receptors for bitter or toxic substances and detoxification enzymes, such as cytochrome P450, carboxylesterase and glutathione-S-transferase were massively expanded in this polyphagous species, enabling its extraordinary ability to detect and detoxify many plant secondary compounds.

TLDR
Bombyx mori, the domesticated silkworm, is a major insect model for research, and the first lepidopteran for which draft genome sequences became available in 2004, which revealed the cascade of genes involved in the juvenile hormone biosynthesis pathway, and a large number of cuticular protein genes.

A comprehensive analysis of the Manduca sexta immunotranscriptome.
TLDR
The increase in extracellular proteins was consistent with the highly induced synthesis of defense molecules in fat body after the immune challenge and set the stage for on-going analysis of the M. sexta immunogenome. Expand
The genome of the leaf-cutting ant Acromyrmex echinatior suggests key adaptations to advanced social life and fungus farming.
TLDR
These first analyses of the A. echinatior genome indicate that considerable genetic changes are likely to have accompanied the transition from hunter-gathering to agricultural food production 50 million years ago, and the Transition from single to multiple queen mating 10 million years years ago.

Pyrosequencing-based expression profiling and identification of differentially regulated genes from Manduca sexta, a lepidopteran model insect.
TLDR
The implementation of the RNA-Seq cDNA sequencing approach based on massively parallel pyrosequencing, which allows us to categorize transcripts based on their relative abundances and to discover process- or tissue-specifically regulated genes simultaneously, is reported. Expand

Data from the present study provide, for the first time, a comprehensive expression profile of genes in silkworm epidermal tissues and evidence that putative elements exist to allow massive production of mRNAs from specific cuticular protein genes. Expand
Annotation and expression analysis of cuticular proteins from the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta.
TLDR
The genome of the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta, is annotated for genes that encode putative cuticular proteins that belong to seven different groups: proteins with a Rebers and Riddiford motif (CPR), proteins analogous to peritrophins (CPAP), proteins withA tweedle motif (CPT), proteins that are CPF-like (CPFL), and proteins with an 18 amino acid motif (18 aa).
