||Transcriptomics in entomological research
||CABI Publishing, 2020
This chapter focuses on how transcriptomics has boosted research in pest science, the lessons it teaches and possible directions for future study. Some of the biggest areas for future research, i.e. transcriptome characterization of insect pests, invasive species and biological control agents, understanding the evolution and mechanisms behind pesticide resistance and dissecting insect-microorganism interactions, are also highlighted.
