Plant-feeding arthropods have developed a variety of genetic adaptations in response to the myriad of toxins produced by plants to defend themselves. Using the recently sequenced genome of the spider mite Tetranychus urticae, Nicky Wybouw uncovers which genes and mechanisms play a role in spider mite resistance to plant defenses.
