In Nature Ecology & Evolution this week, scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences report a genomic analysis of the fall webworm, a highly invasive pest from North America that has spread throughout the Northern Hemisphere in recent decades. Using whole-genome sequencing and transcriptome profiling, the researchers identify genetic factors underlying the rapid adaptation of the fall webworm, such as genes and pathways associated with carbohydrate metabolism and gustatory receptors.
