The diversity and evolutionary success of beetles (Coleoptera) are proposed to be related to the diversity of plants on which they feed. Indeed, the largest beetle suborder, Polyphaga, mostly includes plant eaters among its approximately 315,000 species. In particular, plants defend themselves with a diversity of specialized toxic chemicals. These may impose selective pressures that drive genomic diversification and speciation in phytophagous beetles. However, evidence of changes in beetle gene ...

The increasing affordability of sequencing technologies offers many new and exciting opportunities to address a diverse array of biological questions. This is evidenced in entomological research by numerous genomics and transcriptomics studies that attempt to decipher the often complex relationships among different species or orders and to build "omics" resources to drive advancement of the molecular understanding of insect biology. Being able to gauge the quality of the sequencing data is of cr...

Genomics drives the current progress in molecular biology, generating unprecedented volumes of data. The scientific value of these sequences depends on the ability to evaluate their completeness using a biologically meaningful approach. Here, we describe the use of the BUSCO tool suite to assess the completeness of genomes, gene sets, and transcriptomes, using their gene content as a complementary method to common technical metrics. The chapter introduces the concept of universal single-copy gen...

Metagenomics promotes our understanding of microbial communities. The methodology profoundly relies on computational interpretation of the sequencing reads in the light of our evolving understanding of microbial taxonomy. The fast growing volumes of such readouts and the reference databases prompted development of a multitude of computational procedures over recent years. Only a subset of these has appeared in independent benchmarking assessments, which are also quickly becoming obsolete. This i...

The diversity and evolutionary success of beetles (Coleoptera) are proposed to have arisen from millions of years of specialized trophic interactions with land plants. In particular, ingestion of toxic plant allelochemicals may impose selective pressures that drive genomic diversification and speciation in phytophagous beetles. However, evidence of changes in beetle gene repertoires driven by these interactions remains largely anecdotal and without explicit hypothesis testing. To address this, w...

Genomics promises comprehensive surveying of genomes and metagenomes, but rapidly changing technologies and expanding data volumes make evaluation of completeness a challenging task. Technical sequencing quality metrics can be complemented by quantifying completeness of genomic datasets in terms of the expected gene content of Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Orthologs (BUSCO, http://busco.ezlab.org). The latest software release implements a complete refactoring of the code to make it more fle...

Technical sequencing quality metrics can be complemented by quantifying completeness in terms of the expected gene content of Benchmarking Universal Single-Copy Orthologs (BUSCO, http://busco.ezlab.org).

Insects comprise the most diverse and successful animal group with over one million described species that are found in almost every terrestrial and limnic habitat, with many being used as important models in genetics, ecology, and evolutionary research. Genome sequencing projects have greatly expanded the sampling of species from many insect orders, but genomic resources for species of certain insect lineages have remained relatively limited to date. To address this paucity, we sequenced the ge...

OrthoDB is a comprehensive catalog of orthologs, genes inherited by extant species from a single gene in their last common ancestor. In 2016 OrthoDB reached its 9th release, growing to over 22 million genes from over 5000 species, now adding plants, archaea and viruses. In this update we focused on usability of this fast-growing wealth of data: updating the user and programmatic interfaces to browse and query the data, and further enhancing the already extensive integration of available gene fun...

The natural restoration of soils polluted by aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and m- and p-xylene (BTEX) may be accelerated by inoculation of specific biodegraders (bioaugmentation). Bioaugmentation mainly involves introducing bacteria that deploy their metabolic properties and adaptation potential to survive and propagate in the contaminated environment by degrading the pollutant. In order to better understand the adaptive response of cells during a transition to con...
