  • "I'd love to say we chose the tephritids with this in mind, but it was totally serendipitous," says Eisen.

  • Based on earlier human work, Peterson hypothesized that the well separated blocks of conserved DNA in tephritids were regulatory sequences.

  • More than 150 million years of evolution separate tephritids from

    HHMI News

  • Since there was no method available for testing these sequences in tephritids, Peterson inserted them into the laboratory mainstay

    HHMI News

  • Based on the landscape of non-coding conservation in tephritids, and our initial success in using conservation in tephritids to identify D. melanogaster regulatory sequences, we suggest that comparison of tephritid genomes may provide a systematic means to annotate the non-coding portion of the D. melanogaster genome.

  • Unlike in Drosophila, where virtually all non-coding DNA is highly conserved, blocks of conserved non-coding sequence in tephritids are flanked by large stretches of poorly conserved sequence, similar to what is observed in vertebrate genomes.

  • "The fact that the tephritids had big genomes was originally a nuisance because we had to do more sequencing and more screening.
