Interpretive Summary: Red imported fire ant is an important pest found in the southern United States, including Mississippi. 15 new gene sequences were collected from workers Solenopsis invicta, and submitted to GenBank (GenBank Accession numbers: GU471214, GU471215, GU471216, GU471217, GU471218, GU471219, GU471220, GU471221, GU471222, GU471223, GU471224, GU471225, GU471226, GU471227, and GU471228). This information will provide scientist with genetic tools to study the red imported fire ant.

Technical Abstract: Solenopsis invicta Buren (red imported fire ant) is an important pest. Although it is native to South America, the red imported fire ant has become a pest in the southern United States, including Mississippi. Gene sequences were collected from workers S. invicta, and submitted to GenBank (GenBank Accession numbers: GU471214-GU471228). This information will provide scientist with genetic tools to study populations of the red imported fire ant.
