Adaptation to the abiotic environment in insects: the influence of variability on ecophysiology and evolutionary genomics

Michael E Dillon, Jeffrey D Lozier Abstract Advances in tools to gather environmental, phenotypic, and molecular data have accelerated our ability to detect abiotic drivers of variation across the genome-to-phenome spectrum in model and non-model insects. However, differences in the spatial and temporal resolution of these data sets may create gaps in our understanding of…

Fluctuating thermal regimes prevent chill injury but do not change patterns of oxidative stress in the alfalfa leafcutting bee, Megachile rotundata

Alex S Torson, George D Yocum, Joseph P Rinehart, Sean A Nash, Julia H Bowsher Abstract In insects, prolonged exposure to unseasonably low temperatures can lead to detrimental physiological effects known as chill injury. Changes to active and passive transport across epithelia during chilling likely drive the collapse of ion gradients, metabolic imbalance and potentially…

RASMA: a reverse search algorithm for mining maximal frequent subgraphs

Salem, Saeed; Alokshiya, Mohammed; Hasan, Mohammad Al Published March 16, 2021 Abstract Background Given a collection of coexpression networks over a set of genes, identifying subnetworks that appear frequently is an important research problem known as mining frequent subgraphs. Maximal frequent subgraphs are a representative set of frequent subgraphs; A frequent subgraph is maximal if…
