Abstract

Genomic technologies are revealing several mechanisms of insecticide resistance involving enhanced detoxification or reduced target-site sensitivity that had previously defied molecular analyses. Genome projects are also revealing some potentially far-reaching consequences for pest-insect genomes of the rapid accumulation of multiple resistance mutations in very short periods of evolutionary time.
