The spider mite Tetranychus urticae is a cosmopolitan agricultural pest with an extensive host plant range and an extreme record of pesticide resistance. Here we present the completely sequenced and annotated spider mite genome, representing the first complete chelicerate genome. At 90 megabases T. urticae has the smallest sequenced arthropod genome. Compared with other arthropods, the spider mite genome shows unique changes in the hormonal environment and organization of the Hox complex, and… Expand

Rapid host-plant adaptation in the herbivorous spider mite Tetranychus urticae occurs at low cost.
TLDR
It is found that evidence for costs of adaptation are relatively scarce and that studies involving molecular-genetics and genomics are mostly disconnected from those with phenotypic tests, but with the ongoing development of genetic and genomic tools for this species, T. urticae is becoming an attractive model to understand the molecular basis of host-plant adaptation. Expand
Structural Characterization of a Eukaryotic Cyanase from Tetranychus urticae.
TLDR
Structural studies presented here compare and contrast prokaryotic cyanases to T. urticae cyanase, which all form homodecamers and have conserved active site residues, but display different surface areas between homodimers in the overall decameric structure. Expand
The role of horizontally transferred genes in the xenobiotic adaptations of the spider mite Tetranychus urticae
TLDR
This work successfully identified the gene of which the protein product (B-cyanoalanine synthase) detoxifies plant synthesized cyanide and uncovered that this gene was horizontally transferred from a bacterial species. Expand
Protocols for the delivery of small molecules to the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae
TLDR
Described protocols provide guidelines for high-throughput setups for delivery of experimental compounds that could be used in reverse genetics platforms to modulate gene expression or protein activity, or for screens focused on discovery of new molecules for mite control. Expand
The salivary proteome of Tetranychus urticae : Key to its polyphagous nature?
TLDR
The composition of spider mite saliva was investigated using a multidisciplinary approach based on in silico prediction and proteomics analysis, combined with proterosomal expression analysis and confirmation of the salivary origin using whole-mount in situ hybridization, concluding that theSalivary protein complement of T. urticae is key to its polyphagous nature.

Title Protocols for the delivery of small molecules to the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae
The two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae, is a chelicerate herbivore with an extremely wide host range and an extraordinary ability to develop pesticide resistance. Due to its responsivenessExpand
A massive incorporation of microbial genes into the genome of Tetranychus urticae, a polyphagous arthropod herbivore
TLDR
HGT has made a significant and underestimated impact on the metabolic repertoire of plant‐feeding spider mites, and the evolutionary histories of these HGTs during chelicerate evolution are estimated. Expand
Genome streamlining in a minute herbivore that manipulates its host plant
TLDR
In accordance with ecological specialization theory, this defense-suppressing herbivore has extremely reduced environmental response gene families such as those involved in chemoreception and detoxification, and other losses associate with this species’ highly derived body plan. Expand
Genome Sequencing of the Phytoseiid Predatory Mite Metaseiulus occidentalis Reveals Completely Atomized Hox Genes and Superdynamic Intron Evolution
TLDR
The genome of the western orchard predatory mite improves genomic sampling of chelicerates and provides invaluable new resources for functional genomic analyses of this family of agriculturally important mites. Expand
The genome of Mesobuthus martensii reveals a unique adaptation model of arthropods
TLDR
The genome sequence of Mesobuthus martensii is reported, containing 32,016 protein-coding genes, the most among sequenced arthropods, and reveals a unique adaptation model of arthropod, offering new insights into the genetic bases of the living fossils. Expand

TLDR
The two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae has the smallest genome of any arthropod determined so far, undergoes rapid development and is easy to maintain in the laboratory, which makes it a promising reference organism for the economically important, poorly studied and species-rich chelicerate lineage.

The components of the Daphnia pulex immune system as revealed by complete genome sequencing
TLDR
A survey of the immune-related genome of D. pulex found that some immune pathways, in particular the TOLL pathway, are fairly well conserved between insects and Daphnia, while other elements could not be recovered from the genome sequence. Expand
Genomic survey of the ectoparasitic mite Varroa destructor, a major pest of the honey bee Apis mellifera
TLDR
Ongoing development of Varroa genomic resources will be a boon for comparative genomics of under-represented arthropods, and will further enhance the honey bee and its associated pathogens as a model system for studying host-pathogen interactions. Expand
The Ecoresponsive Genome of Daphnia pulex
TLDR
The Daphnia genome reveals a multitude of genes and shows adaptation through gene family expansions, and the coexpansion of gene families interacting within metabolic pathways suggests that the maintenance of duplicated genes is not random. Expand
Recent emergence and worldwide spread of the red tomato spider mite, Tetranychus evansi: genetic variation and multiple cryptic invasions
TLDR
Genetic data demonstrate two different patterns of invasions: populations in the Mediterranean basin that are a result of multiple cryptic introductions and emerging invasions of Africa and Asia, each likely the result of propagules from one or limited sources. Expand
Immunity and other defenses in pea aphids, Acyrthosiphon pisum
TLDR
It is suggested that several aspects of the aphid life style, such as their association with microbial symbionts, could facilitate survival without strong immune protection, and the traditional view of insect immunity may not be as broadly applicable as once thought. Expand
Annotation and expression of carboxylesterases in the silkworm, Bombyx mori
TLDR
B. mori has the largest number of insect COE genes characterized to date, and expression evidence indicated that the expanded genes were specifically expressed in midgut, integument and head, implying that these genes may have important roles in detoxifying secondary metabolites of mulberry leaves, contaminants in diet and odorants. Expand
The Potential for pathogenicity was present in the ancestor of the Ascomycete subphylum Pezizomycotina
TLDR
Most of the proteins for pathogenicity were already present in the ancestor of the Ascomycete lineages used in this study, and it is found that expansion of gained or already existing families in a species-specific way is important to fine-tune the specificities of the pathogenic host-fungus interaction.
