Genes of viral origin in the Fopius arisanus genome
Fopius arisanus (Sonan) is a braconid wasp (subfamily Opiinae) and biological control agent of a broad range of tephritid fruit fly species, including the global pests Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata and the Oriental fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis. In an effort to create foundational genomic resources for this species, the complete genome and transcriptomes for several wasp life stages have been recently generated. Manual annotation of 55 viral genes and phylogenetic analysis revealed that F. arisanus has independently acquired a symbiotic virus related to alpha-nudiviruses.
