Research Notes
Greg Sword, Ph.D., Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Entomology professor, has received $499,000 to determine fall armyworm behaviors and genomic traits that could aid in controlling the agricultural pests. The research sprung from studies by Texas A&M University graduate student Ashley Tessnow, who will work on the new project as a postdoctoral …

Research Notes
Two potential cover crops such as cowpea and sunnhemp have the potential to reduce the larval population of #fallarmyworm by lengthening the developmental time and increasing larval mortality. The other cover crops such as either corn or sorghum-sudangrass are two more preferred crops for the fall armyworm. Hence there is a potential to design a …

Research Notes
The CRISPR/Cas9 system is an efficient genome editing method that can be used in functional genomics research. The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda, is a serious agricultural pest that has spread over most of the world. However, very little information is available on functional genomics for this insect. We performed CRISPR/Cas9-mediated site-specific mutagenesis of three target genes: two …
