Species specific genes under selection characterize the co evolution of slavemaker and host lifestyles

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 5715652
PMID: 29202686
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-017-1078-9

[…] We chose the myrmicine ant Acromyrmex echinator to include as outgroup, for which we observed the highest Blast similarity in our contig Blast searches. A. echinator sequences were obtained from the “Hymenoptera Genome Database” [; aech_OGSv3.8_pep.fa]. We inferred orthology between T. curvispinosus and Acromyrmex echinator applying a local BLASTn []. The according sequences for each cluster were […]


Differential Properties of Venom Peptides and Proteins in Solitary vs. Social Hunting Wasps

PMCID: 4773785
PMID: 26805885
DOI: 10.3390/toxins8020032

[…] nom peptides, including those rarely detected by proteomic analysis []. While an increasing body of genomic or transcriptomic information on wasp venom toxins has become available to date through the Hymenoptera Genome Database [], the information on solitary wasp venom is relatively more limited as compared with that on social wasp. This situation highlights the importance of establishing the ven […]


The 2016 database issue of Nucleic Acids Research and an updated molecular biology database collection

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4702933
PMID: 26740669
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv1356

[…] tion of genome resources for human and model organisms (Ensembl, RefSeq, UCSC Genome Browser, ENCODE portal), including yeast (SGD), C. elegans (WormBase), Drosophila (FlyBase), ants, bees and wasps (Hymenoptera Genome Database), cow and mouse. The new arrivals include a collection of insect genome resources and genome databases of planaria and ascidians (–). A very interesting Deciphering the Mec […]


The genomes of two key bumblebee species with primitive eusocial organization

Patterns of Positive Selection in Seven Ant Genomes

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 4069625
PMID: 24782441
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msu141

[…] Protein-coding gene sequences of the seven ant genomes were downloaded from the Hymenoptera Genome Database (http://hymenopteragenome.org/ant_genomes/, last accessed April 24, 2014) ().The complete annotated gene sets were OGS_1.0 for Acromyrmex echinatior (), OGS_1.2 for Atta ce […]
