Singh, S., Gupta, M., Pandher, S., Kaur, G., Goel, N., & Rathore, P. 2019 Using de novo transcriptome assembly and analysis to study RNAi in Phenacoccus solenopsis Tinsley (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae). Scientific Reports (2019) 9:13710
Notes: RNAi has been studied in many insect species8,9 and its effectiveness is highly variable among rhem10,11. RNAi involves sequence specific downregulation of the targeted gene through dsRNA feeding or injection in insects, which results in the loss of function of a vital physiological process. The present study was carried out to generate transcriptome sequences data and explore RNAi in this insect.
