Phylogenomics reveals the history of host use in mosquitoes


By: J. Soghigian n, C. Sither n, S. Justi*, G. Morinaga*, B. Cassel n, C. Vitek*, T. Livdahl*, S. Xia* ...

TL;DR: An origin of mosquitoes in the early Triassic is supported, considerably older than previous estimates and that mosquito diversification and host-use patterns within major lineages appear to coincide in earth history both with major continental drift events and with the diversification of vertebrate classes.

A New Pipeline for Removing Paralogs in Target Enrichment Data

SYSTEMATIC BIOLOGY, 71(2), 410–425.

By: W. Zhou n, J. Soghigian n & Q. Xiang n

MeSH headings : Genome; High-Throughput Nucleotide Sequencing; Phylogeny
TL;DR: The value of Hyb-Seq with data derived from the Angiosperms353 probe set for elucidating species relationships within a genus is demonstrated, and the importance of additional steps to filter paralogous genes and poorly aligned regions is argued. (via Semantic Scholar)

Phylogenetic resolution of the fly superfamily Ephydroidea-Molecular systematics of the enigmatic and diverse relatives of Drosophilidae

PLOS ONE, 17(10).

By: I. Winkler*, A. Kirk-Spriggs, K. Bayless*, J. Soghigian n, R. Meier*, T. Pape*, D. Yeates*, A. Carvalho*, R. Copeland*, B. Wiegmann n

MeSH headings : Acetic Acid; Animals; Drosophilidae / genetics; Phylogeny
TL;DR: To resolve relationships among a diverse sample of Ephydroidea, including the highly modified flies in the families Braulidae and Mormotomyiidae, phylogenomic sampling reaffirm that sampling of both taxa and characters is critical in hyperdiverse clades and that these factors have a major influence on phylogenomic reconstruction of the history of the schizophoran fly radiation.

Field Evidence of Mosquito Population Regulation by a Gregarine Parasite


By: J. Soghigian n & T. Livdahl*

author keywords: parasite; host; population regulation; mosquito; Aedes
MeSH headings : Aedes / growth & development; Aedes / parasitology; Aedes / physiology; Animals; Apicomplexa / physiology; Bermuda; Host-Parasite Interactions; Larva / growth & development; Larva / parasitology; Larva / physiology; Mosquito Vectors / growth & development; Mosquito Vectors / parasitology; Mosquito Vectors / physiology; Population Dynamics
TL;DR: It is found that even for a parasite with moderate virulence, host regulation can occur in the field, and there is no evidence of host density affecting parasite prevalence. (via Semantic Scholar)

From e-voucher to genomic data: Preserving archive specimens as demonstrated with medically important mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) and kissing bugs (Hemiptera: Reduviidae)

PLOS ONE, 16(2).

By: S. Justi*, J. Soghigian n, D. Pecor*, L. Caicedo-Quiroga*, W. Rutvisuttinunt*, T. Li*, L. Stevens*, P. Dorn*, B. Wiegmann n, Y. Linton*

MeSH headings : Animals; Culicidae / genetics; DNA / genetics; Genomics / methods; Humans; Phylogeny; Sequence Analysis, DNA / methods; Triatoma / genetics; Triatominae / genetics
TL;DR: A methodology for the use of archive specimens that includes two crucial phases: thoroughly documenting specimens destined for destructive sampling and the pipeline used for whole genome sequencing of archived specimens, from extraction of genomic DNA to assembly of putative genomes with basic annotation are presented.

The Prediapause Stage of Aedes japonicus japonicus and the Evolution of Embryonic Diapause in Aedini

INSECTS, 10(8).

By: J. Bova*, J. Soghigian n & S. Paulson*

author keywords: mosquito; diapause; overwinter; ancestral state reconstruction
TL;DR: The objective of this study was to identify the prediapause stage, or the stage sensitive to environmental cues needed to induce diapause in Aedes japonicus, and it was determined that the adult maternal life stage is theprediAPause stage. (via Semantic Scholar)
