  • Arthropod Genomics (i5k) session at Biodiversity Genomics meeting (5-9 Oct, virtual!)

    Dear All,

    Please forward this invite to your members.

    You are all warmly invited to attend this year's Arthropod Genomics (i5k) session in the Biodiversity Genomics meeting, being held in a virtual format from wherever you are! We are inviting talk and virtual poster submissions from graduate and undergraduate students for all types of insect genomics projects. From 5-9 October, we will have thematic sessions on genomics grouped around “Regional, National and International Projects”, “Taxon-focussed Projects”, “Systems Approaches” and “Technology Advances”. Each will have a dedicated or shared workshop session, and a dedicated poster session and meeting room. The final program will be posted on the website soon.

    Registration is for access to the meeting; there is no fee.

    Full details and the registration link are available at:

  • Dear fellow entomologists/ insect trivia enthusiasts,
    Here is an opportunity to fill out this quick survey (less than a minute) of just 8 questions and a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. we are conducting market research about a mobile version of an insect trivia quiz bowl. If you would also forward this to other insect trivia enthusiasts, that would be great. #entomology #bugtrivia #insecttrivia
    Thanks in advance.

Looking for symposium participants: Got Bycatch?

Good afternoon, everyone!As entomologists we know that many of our survey and research activities capture numerous specimens in addition to the insects we are studying… sometimes at ghastly levels. There has been a recent surge of interest in the problem and value of bycatch across entomology, and some of us would like to organize a symposium on this topic for the ESA annual meeting in St. Louis, 17-20 November 2019. We are interested in hearing from colleagues across the entomological…

Vote to sequence the bombardier beetle genome! It's the only insect in the "most interesting genome in the world" contest

Hello colleagues,We're asking for your votes for the bombardier beetle to win the popularity contest for "most interesting genome in the world". Bombardiers are among the world's most impressive chemists, famous for their ability to repel predators with rapid-fire, precisely aimed explosive disharges of a toxic chemical mix at over 100C. If we win, PacBio will sequence the bombardier genome! This will provide a valuable resource for entomologists, evolutionary biologists and chemical…
