Migratory Locust EST Database

The migratory locust (Locusta migratoria) is an orthopteran pest and a representative member of hemimetabolous insects. Its transcriptomic data provide invaluable information for molecular entomology study of the insect and pave a way for comparative studies of other medically, agronomically, and ecologically relevant insects. This first transcriptomic database of the locust (LocustDB) has been developed, building necessary infrastructures to integrate, organize, and retrieve data that are either currently available or to be acquired in the future. It currently hosts 45,474 high quality EST sequences from the locust, which were assembled into 12,161 unigenes. This database contains original sequence data, including homologous/orthologous sequences, functional annotations, pathway analysis, and codon usage, based on conserved orthologous groups (COG), gene ontology (GO), protein domain (InterPro), and functional pathways (KEGG). It also provides information from comparative analysis based on data from the migratory locust and five other invertebrate species, such as the silkworm, the honeybee, the fruitfly, the mosquito and the nematode. LocustDB also provides information from comparative analysis based on data from the migratory locust and five other invertebrate species, such as the silkworm, the honeybee, the fruitfly, the mosquito and the nematode. It starts with the first transcriptome information for an orthopteran and hemimetabolous insect and will be extended to provide a framework for incorporation of in-coming genomic data of relevant insect groups and a workbench for cross-species comparative studies.
