Promoters From Two Sap-Sucking Pests

Qian et al (2016) using bioinformatic and transient heterologous expression systems have identified three strong promoters from the genomes of the Hemipterans  Nilaparvata lugens and Nephotettix cincticeps. The abundance of genome sequence data is a boon to insect science and […]

Animal and Insect Transgenics – Parallels

James Murray and Elizabeth Maga recently recounted briefly the development and evolution of animal transgenic technologies in a recent issue of Transgenic Research and the similarities and differences between the development and evolution of insect transgenic technologies, which were ongoing […]

Compendium of Genome Engineering

Koen Venken and colleagues have just published an excellent review of ‘Genome Engineering: Drosophila melanogaster and beyond‘ that is comprehensive and highly informative, and should serve as a useful reference for anyone interested in genome modification techniques with nucleotide precision […]
