- Horizontal gene transfer between Wolbachia and the mosquito Aedes aegyptiLisa Klasson
Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
BMC Genomics 10:33. 2009..Recent transfers of genome fragments from Wolbachia into insect chromosomes have been reported, but it has been argued that these fragments may be on an evolutionary trajectory to degradation and loss...
- Genome evolution of Wolbachia strain wPip from the Culex pipiens groupLisa Klasson
Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research and Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom
Mol Biol Evol 25:1877-87. 2008..This host-Wolbachia system, with its complex patterns of sterility induced between populations, now provides an excellent model for unraveling the molecular systems underlying host reproductive manipulation...
- Ankyrin repeat domain-encoding genes in the wPip strain of Wolbachia from the Culex pipiens groupThomas Walker
Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research and Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS, UK
BMC Biol 5:39. 2007..Species in the Culex pipiens complex display an unusually high number of Wolbachia-induced crossing types, and based on present data, only the wPip strain is present...
