  • Accurate Strand-Specific Quantification of Viral RNA 

    Plaskon, Nicole E.; Adelman, Zach N.; Myles, Kevin M. (PLOS, 2009-10-22)
    The presence of full-length complements of viral genomic RNA is a hallmark of RNA virus replication within an infected cell. As such, methods for detecting and measuring specific strands of viral RNA in infected cells and ...
  • Double Subgenomic Alphaviruses Expressing Multiple Fluorescent Proteins Using a Rhopalosiphum padi Virus Internal Ribosome Entry Site Element 

    Wiley, Michael R.; Roberts, Lisa O.; Adelman, Zach N.; Myles, Kevin M. (PLOS, 2010-11-10)
    Double subgenomic Sindbis virus (dsSINV) vectors are widely used for the expression of proteins, peptides, and RNA sequences. These recombinant RNA viruses permit high level expression of a heterologous sequence in a wide ...
  • Deep Sequencing of Pyrethroid-Resistant Bed Bugs Reveals Multiple Mechanisms of Resistance within a Single Population 

    Adelman, Zach N.; Kilcullen, Kathleen A.; Koganemaru, Reina; Anderson, Michelle A. E.; Anderson, Troy D.; Miller, Dini M. (PLOS, 2011-10-19)
    A frightening resurgence of bed bug infestations has occurred over the last 10 years in the U.S. and current chemical methods have been inadequate for controlling this pest due to widespread insecticide resistance. Little ...
  • TALEN-Based Gene Disruption in the Dengue Vector Aedes aegypti 

    Aryan, Azadeh; Anderson, Michelle A. E.; Myles, Kevin M.; Adelman, Zach N. (PLOS, 2013-03-21)
    In addition to its role as the primary vector for dengue viruses, Aedes aegypti has a long history as a genetic model organism for other bloodfeeding mosquitoes, due to its ease of colonization, maintenance and reproductive ...
  • The Development of Cytogenetic Maps for Malaria Mosquitoes
