  • Evidence for divergent selection between the molecular forms of Anopheles gambiae: role of predation 

    Diabaté, Abdoulaye; Dabiré, Roch K; Heidenberger, Kyle; Crawford, Jacob; Lamp, William O; Culler, Lauren E; Lehmann, Tovi (Springer Nature, 2008-01-11)
    The molecular forms of Anopheles gambiae are undergoing speciation. They are characterized by a strong assortative mating and they display partial habitat segregation. The M form is mostly found in flooded/irrigated areas ...
  • Toward reconstructing the evolution of advanced moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera: Ditrysia): an initial molecular study 

    Regier, Jerome C; Zwick, Andreas; Cummings, Michael P; Kawahara, Akito Y; Cho, Soowon; Weller, Susan; Roe, Amanda; Baixeras, Joaquin; Brown, John W; Parr, Cynthia; Davis, Donald R; Epstein, Marc; Hallwachs, Winifred; Hausmann, Axel; Janzen, Daniel H; Kitching, Ian J; Solis, M Alma; Yen, Shen-Horn; Bazinet, Adam L; Mitter, Charles (Springer Nature, 2009-12-02)
    In the mega-diverse insect order Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths; 165,000 described species), deeper relationships are little understood within the clade Ditrysia, to which 98% of the species belong. To begin addressing ...
  • DNA binding activities of the Herves transposase from the mosquito Anopheles gambiae 

    Kahlon, Amandeep S; Hice, Robert H; O'Brochta, David A; Atkinson, Peter W (Springer Nature, 2011-06-20)
    Determining the mechanisms by which transposable elements move within a genome increases our understanding of how they can shape genome evolution. Class 2 transposable elements transpose via a 'cut-and-paste' mechanism ...
  • Increased gene sampling strengthens support for higher-level groups within leaf-mining moths and relatives (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) 

    Kawahara, Akito Y; Ohshima, Issei; Kawakita, Atsushi; Regier, Jerome C; Mitter, Charles; Cummings, Michael P; Davis, Donald R; Wagner, David L; De Prins, Jurate; Lopez-Vaamonde, Carlos (Springer Nature, 2011-06-24)
    Researchers conducting molecular phylogenetic studies are frequently faced with the decision of what to do when weak branch support is obtained for key nodes of importance. As one solution, the researcher may choose to ...
  • Genome sequence of the insect pathogenic fungus Cordyceps militaris, a valued traditional chinese medicine 

    Zheng, Peng; Xia, Yongliang; Xiao, Guohua; Xiong, Chenghui; Hu, Xiao; Zhang, Siwei; Zheng, Huajun; Huang, Yin; Zhou, Yan; Wang, Shengyue; Zhao, Guo-Ping; Liu, Xingzhong; St Leger, Raymond J; Wang, Chengshu (Springer Nature, 2011-11-23)
    Species in the ascomycete fungal genus Cordyceps have been proposed to be the teleomorphs of Metarhizium species. The latter have been widely used as insect biocontrol agents. Cordyceps species are highly prized for use ...
