An international team led by investigators at the University of Montana used genome and transcriptome sequencing to untangle some of the genes involved in a three-way symbiotic relationship involving Tremblaya princeps bacteria that live inside mealybugs and another bacterial species that acts as an endosymbiont to some that bacteria. Results of the researchers' assessment suggest the mealybug genome houses 22 or more genes nabbed from bacteria through horizontal gene transfer.
