Ichneumonoidea is one of the most diverse lineages of animals on the planet with more than 48,000 described species and many more undescribed. Parasitoid wasps of this superfamily are beneficial insects that attack and kill other arthropods and are important for understanding diversification and the evolution of life history strategies related to parasitoidism. Further, some lineages of parasitoids within Ichneumonoidea have acquired endogenous virus elements (EVEs) that are permanently a part… Expand
The Presence of Ancient Core Genes Reveals Endogenization from Diverse Viral Ancestors in Parasitoid Wasps
TLDR
This study presents a novel bioinformatic approach for EVE discovery in genomes and shows that three divergent virus families are recurrently acquired as EVEs in parasitoid wasps. Expand
Endogenization from diverse viral ancestors is common and widespread in parasitoid wasps
TLDR
This study presents a novel bioinformatic approach for EVE discovery in genomes and shows that three divergent virus families are recurrently acquired as EVEs in parasitoid wasps and suggests several novel virus co-option events from diverse groups of double-stranded DNA virus pathogens. Expand
Evolution of a cytoplasmic determinant: evidence for the biochemical basis of functional evolution of a novel germ line regulator
TLDR
An alignment of all known 379 Oskar sequences revealed new highly conserved residues as candidates that promote dimerization of the LOTUS domain, and it is shown that despite a low overall amino acid conservation, the LOT US domain shows higher conservation of predicted secondary structure than the OSK domain.

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
Phylogeny of the parasitic microgastroid subfamilies (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) based on sequence data from seven genes, with an improved time estimate of the origin of the lineage.
TLDR
This work represents a more extensive attempt to resolve the microgastroid relationships, using seven genes (16S rRNA, cytochrome oxidase I (CO1), 28S r RNA, arginine kinase (ArgK), long wavelength rhodopsin (Ops), elongation factor 1 alpha (EF1a) and wingless) and a greater taxonomic representation.

Endogenization from diverse viral ancestors is common and widespread in parasitoid wasps
TLDR
This study presents a novel bioinformatic approach for EVE discovery in genomes and shows that three divergent virus families are recurrently acquired as EVEs in parasitoid wasps and suggests several novel virus co-option events from diverse groups of double-stranded DNA virus pathogens. Expand
Effects of the polydnavirus of Cotesia congregata on the immune system and development of non-habitual hosts of the parasitoid.
TLDR
Testing the effects of purified PDV from Cotesia congregata on the immune response of three larval lepidopteran species that naturally are hosts of parasitoid species that differ in taxonomic relatedness to C. congregata demonstrates that while some PDV modes of immunosuppression in hosts may be divergent, others may be conserved across broad host groups.

Hybrid capture data unravel a rapid radiation of pimpliform parasitoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Pimpliformes)
TLDR
It is shown that the initially steep increase in mean clade support slows down at around 40 genes, and consideration of up to 93 genes still left various nodes in the inferred phylogenetic tree poorly resolved, so it remains to be shown whether more extensive gene or taxon sampling can resolve the early evolution of the pimpliform subfamilies.

A phylogenetic reconstruction of the Ichneumonoidea (Hymenoptera) based on the D2 variable region of 28S ribosomal RNA
TLDR
The D2 variable region of 28S rRNA was sequenced in a wide range of Ichneumonoidea to provide the first comprehensive phylogenetic reconstruction of this superfamily, finding one well‐supported clade dominated by the more plesiomorphic life history strategies. Expand
Evolutionary patterns of host utilization by ichneumonoid parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae and Braconidae)*
The four major biological strategies of ichneumonoid parasitoids, koinobiont and idiobiont, ecto-and endoparasitism, are discussed and the evolutionary radiations of the two families IchneumonidaeExpand
Phylogenomic Insights into the Evolution of Stinging Wasps and the Origins of Ants and Bees
TLDR
There is unequivocal evidence that ants are the sister group to bees+apoid wasps (Apoidea) and that bees are nested within a paraphyletic Crabronidae, and that taxon choice can fundamentally impact tree topology and clade support in phylogenomic inference. Expand
Molecular Systematics of Wasp and Polydnavirus Genomes and their Coevolution
TLDR
Phylogenetic studies of the BV-carrying lineage of braconid wasps are now guiding comparative studies of BV genomes and advancing the understanding of the roles that BV genes may play in the evolution of wasp/caterpillar parasitic relationships. Expand
Phylogeny of the Subfamilies of Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera)
TLDR
A combined morphological and molecular phylogenetic analysis was performed to evaluate the subfamily relationships of the parasitoid wasp family Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera) and it was concluded that the molecular characters produced results that were relatively consistent with traditional, non-phylogenetic concepts of relationships between the ichneumonid subfamilies.
