De novo genomics of non-model arthropods

Defense Thèse de doctorat : Univ. Genève, 2018 - Sc. 5254 - 2018/08/28
Abstract The extreme diversity of arthropods provides many opportunities for understating how ecological and genetic factors have interacted over the course of evolution. However, there is a marked imbalance on the genomic sampling of the arthropod tree of life due to a variety of reasons. Entire orders of basal arthropods have gone entirely unsampled in terms of genomic data, although they would be very informative for evolutionarily comparisons. This sparseness of available sequencing data is partially explained due to the inherent difficulties in sequencing organisms possessing both large genome sizes and high levels of heterozygosis, further compounded by an absence of inbred laboratory colonies for most of these clades. To enable genomic evolutionarily comparisons of early radiated arthropod lineages, we sequenced, de novo assembled, and annotated the genomes of several basal insects, including some previously unsampled arthropod orders, such Notoptera and Odonata.
