. Phylogenomic analysis reveals bees and wasps (Hymenoptera) at the base of the radiation of Holometabolous insects. Genome Res. 2006;16:1334-8 pubmed
..We validate our results by meticulous examination of potential confounding factors. Phylogenomic approaches are thus able to resolve long-standing questions about the phylogeny of insects. ..

..vitripennis cytoplasm account for most of the intrinsic hybrid inviability in this cross. The high mortality rate in F2 hybrids with N. giraulti cytoplasm cannot be explained by the single identified TRDL alone, however. ..
