Transcriptomics in entomological research.

Book cover for Transcriptomics in entomological research.

Description

This book introduces transcriptomics and presents an array of its uses in entomology, past and present. It starts with a thorough introduction to how transcriptomics works, its history, and some of its broad-stroke uses in insect science (Chapter 1). This chapter is followed by an exhaustively comprehensive look at how transcriptomics analysis is performed, and the software packages available to h...

Chapter 4 (Page no: 60)

Aphid transcriptomics - past, present and future.

This chapter provides a brief overview of insect genomic and transcriptomic research, focusing on aphid transcriptomics. Transcriptomic surveys in different model and non-model aphid species regarding their biology, host specificity, viral transmission, polyphenism and pesticide resistance are presented and a glimpse into the future of transcriptomics in aphids is pointed out.
