The Genome of the Yellow Mealworm, <i>Tenebrio molitor</i>: It's Bigger Than You Think

GENES, 14(12).

By: B. Oppert*, A. Dossey*, F. Chu*, E. Satovic-Vuksic*, M. Plohl*, T. Smith*, S. Koren*, M. Olmstead* ...

author keywords: CRISPR Cas9 gene editing; insects as food and feed; insect genomics and genetics; stored product insect; Tenebrio molitor; yellow mealworm
TL;DR: The genome of T. molitor is longer than current assemblies due to a substantial amount of only one highly abundant satellite DNA sequence, which will promote the sustainable utilization of mealworms and other farmed insects. (via Semantic Scholar)

The Genome of Rhyzopertha dominica (Fab.) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae): Adaptation for Success

Genes, 13(3), 446.

author keywords: Bostrichidae; insect reference genome; insecticide resistance; insect genetics; lesser grain borer; Rhyzopertha dominica
MeSH headings : Acclimatization; Animals; Coleoptera / genetics; Dominica; Insecticides; Larva / genetics
TL;DR: The lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae), is a major global pest of cereal grains, and the genome sequenced to identify genes responsible for important biological functions and develop more targeted and efficacious management strategies.
