Powerful Genetic and Genomic Toolbox of Nasonia Wasps

Jeremy Lynch (2015) has published a nice overview of the genetic/genomic tools currently available for Nasonia species. Insects in the order of Hymenoptera are emerging as new genetic and genomic tools for evolutionary biology, development, and behavioral ecology. Among over […]

IGTRCN Trainees – Fall 2014!

The IGTRCN is working to diffuse knowledge and technology from those who ‘know’ and ‘have’ to those who do not but need to. The Peer-to-Peer Training Fellowships are intended to facilitate the process by providing modest resources to encourage interactions. […]

Transgenic Honeybees – Finally!

Genome modification technologies have been increasing steadily in recent years. With the exception of direct genome editing technologies (ZFNs, TALENs and CRISPRs) variously technologies for use in insects rely heavily on transposon platforms to move these technologies into target genomes. […]
