Summary Synchronizing the annual timing of physiological, morphological, and behavioral transitions with seasons enables survival in temperate environments [ 1 ]. The capacity to adjust life history timing and track local seasonal cycles can facilitate geographic expansion [ 2 ], adaptation [ 3 ], and tolerance [ 4 , 5 , 6 ] during rapid environmental change. Understanding the proximate causes of variation in seasonal timing improves prediction of future response and persistence [ 7 , 8 ]. Howev...

Abstract Cytochrome P450s are part of a super-gene family that has undergone gene duplication, divergence, over-expression and, in some cases, loss of function. One such case is the 91-R and 91-C strains of common origin, in Drosophila melanogaster , whereby 91-R (DDT resistant strain) overexpresses Cyp4p1 and Cyp4p2 and both genes are lost in 91-C (DDT susceptible strain). In this study, we used a comparative approach to demonstrate that transcription of Cyp4p1 and Cyp4p2 were constitutively up...

A high-quality reference genome is an essential tool for applied and basic research on arthropods. Long-read sequencing technologies may be used to generate more complete and contiguous genome assemblies than alternate technologies, however, long-read methods have historically had greater input DNA requirements and higher costs than next generation sequencing, which are barriers to their use on many samples. Here, we present a 2.3 Gb de novo genome assembly of a field-collected adult female Spot...

Maize (Zea mays L.) is a preferred host of fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae), with larvae primarily feeding on developing leaves and ear tissue. The fall armyworm is resistant to several classes of insecticide and Bt-maize grown in certain areas. Native sources of plant resistance to the pest are available for public use, but new sources of resistance need to be discovered and developed. The objective for this study was to test maize germplasm collected fr...

Ten constitutively differentially expressed miRNAs were previously described between DDT-resistant 91-R and -susceptible control Drosophila melanogaster strains, and among their predicted target genes were those associated with metabolic DDT resistance mechanisms. The present study evaluated the inducibility of miRNA expression and putative downstream regulation of cytochrome P450s in response to DDT exposure in a time-dependent manner in 91-R and the susceptible Canton-S strain. Specifically, R...

Background Sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci MED/Q and MEAM1/B, are two economically important invasive species that cause considerable damages to agriculture crops through direct feeding and indirect vectoring of plant pathogens. Recently, a draft genome of B. tabaci MED/Q has been assembled. In this study, we focus on the genomic comparison between MED/Q and MEAM1/B, with a special interest in MED/Q’s genomic signatures that may contribute to the highly invasive nature of this emerging inse...
