Special Collection: Filth Fly-Microbe Interactions

Our knowledge of the biology of filth flies, in particular their associations with microbes is a blossoming area of study. The fairly recent availability of “omic” resources such as genomes, transcriptomes, and microbiomes for the most important of these fly species, and advent of new and improving techniques for studying fly–microbe interactions on a biochemical, cellular, and molecular level, collectively provide exciting opportunities to discover novel targets for fly control and mitigation as well as avenues to exploit filth fly biology for human benefit. The papers in this special collection have the common theme of using these next-generation resources and innovative approaches to study the biology of fly–microbe interactions.
