    Alex C C Wilson
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    BMC Genomics 7:50. 2006
    ..Development of this dual-genome array represents a first attempt to characterize gene expression in this emerging model system...

    Alex C C Wilson
    Center for Insect Science, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    Genet Res 87:33-43. 2006
    ..Male recombination was observed in three families, including autosomal linkage groups and the Y1/X2 linkage group. In addition to the X1 linkage group, two autosomal linkage groups were identified...
  3. pmc Aphid thermal tolerance is governed by a point mutation in bacterial symbionts
    Helen E Dunbar
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, United States of America
    PLoS Biol 5:e96. 2007
    ..Other cases in which symbiont microevolution has a major effect on host ecological tolerance are likely to be widespread because of the high mutation rates of symbiotic bacteria and their crucial roles in host metabolism and development...
  4. ncbi Lack of detectable genetic recombination on the X chromosome during the parthenogenetic production of female and male aphids
    F Dinah Hales
    Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, NSW, Australia
    Genet Res 79:203-9. 2002
    ..Our results show no departure from clonality in parthenogenetic generations of aphids of the tribe Macrosiphini: no recombinant genotypes were observed in parthenogenetically produced males or females...
  5. ncbi The genetic outcomes of sex and recombination in long-term functionally parthenogenetic lineages of Australian Sitobion aphids
    Alex C C Wilson
    Division of Botany and Zoology, Australian National University, ACT 0200 Australia
    Genet Res 87:175-85. 2006
    ..The mechanisms underlying these patterns are not clear. We discuss several possible alternatives, including mutation accumulation during periods of functional asexuality and genetic imprinting...

    John S Ramsey
    Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, Tower Road, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA
    BMC Genomics 8:423. 2007
    ..However, despite the significant damage inflicted by M. persicae in agricultural systems through direct feeding damage and by its ability to transmit plant viruses, limited genomic information is available for this species...

    Dinah F Hales
    Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, NSW 2109, Australia
    Genet Res 79:119-27. 2002
    ..However, in androcyclic clones, segregation distortions consistently involved the same two autosomes. This is consistent with linkage of markers to deleterious mutations associated with a loss of sexual reproduction...
