The FedEx Institute is funding a groundbreaking genetic research project on the Asian Multicolored Ladybug that has yielded 592 million short sequences of DNA. Completion of this draft genome puts the U of M in the company of top-ranked research schools. The McKenna Lab is also working in collaboration with the Insect 5000 genomes project to sequence the full genome of the Asian Long-horned Beetle, which was accidentally introduced to the United States in the 1990s. The research will aid in the effort to control the beetle, whose larval stage has caused the destruction of many thousands of mature hardwoods in the northeastern U.S.A.
