    • Changes in Endosymbiont Complexity Drive Host-Level Compensatory Adaptations in Cicadas 

      Campbell, Matthew A.; Łukasik, Piotr; Meyer, Mariah C.; Buckner, Mark; Simon, Chris; Veloso Iriarte, Claudio; Michalik, Anna; McCutcheon, John P. (NLM (Medline), 2018)
      Copyright © 2018 Campbell et al. For insects that depend on one or more bacterial endosymbionts for survival, it is critical that these bacteria are faithfully transmitted between insect generations. Cicadas harbor two ...
    • Evolutionary relationships among Massospora spp. (Entomophthorales), obligate pathogens of cicadas 

      Macías, Angie M.; Geiser, David M.; Stajich, Jason E.; Łukasik, Piotr; Veloso Iriarte, Claudio; Bublitz, DeAnna C.; Berger, Matthew C.; Boyce, Greg R.; Hodge, Kathie; Kasson, Matt T. (Taylor & Francis, 2020)
      The fungal genus Massospora (Zoopagomycota: Entomophthorales) includes more than a dozen obligate, sexually transmissible pathogenic species that infect cicadas (Hemiptera) worldwide. At least two species are known to ...
    • One hundred mitochondrial genomes of cicadas 

      Łukasik, Piotr; Chong, Rebecca A.; Nazario, Katherine; Matsuura, Yu; Bublitz, DeAnna C.; Campbell, Matthew A.; Meyer, Mariah C.; Van Leuven, James T.; Pessacq, Pablo; Veloso, Claudio; Simon, Chris; McCutcheon, John P. (Oxford University Press, 2019)
      Mitochondrial genomes can provide valuable information on the biology and evolutionary histories of their host organisms. Here, we present and characterize the complete coding regions of 107 mitochondrial genomes (mitogenomes) ...
