"Genomic insights into immunity from an aspiring model species"

〈要旨〉
Immunity in insects has traditionally been thought of as a bit dull since they lack the adaptive immune response. Despite this apparent handicap insects achieve surprisingly complex tasks that are similar to those produced by adaptive immune responses in vertebrates, including immune memory and specificity of resistance. Recent advances in genomic and resistance techniques have made interrogating the putative mechanisms behind biologically interesting traits in diverse species more feasible than ever before. Here I discuss how comparative genomics and experimental transcriptomics are beginning to shed light on the mechanisms behind these processes in a model of ecological immunology, the bumblebee Bombus terrestris and ongoing work into similar processes in the European honeybee Apis mellifera, and insects that vector human diseases.
