Unlocking the Genome of the World's Worst Insect Pest of Agriculture
Abstract:Australian scientists are leading an international group that is sequencing the genome of what is arguably the world's worst insect pest of agriculture, the moth, Helicoverpa armigera. A few insects have already had their genomes sequenced – mainly dipterans (flies and mosquitoes) and, of course, the honey bee. Several others, including the silkworm, are being worked on.
