With the deluge of sequence information, researchers have become increasingly interested in mining these data in order to find the answers to complex biological questions. Advancements in the field of bioinformatics to handle huge amount of data has also played a key role in this process. The availability of multiple insect genomes has created an outstanding potential for comparative genomics among insects that can lead to a wealth of information on organismal biology. Research in the field of Phylogenomics, where genomic data is used for inferring phylogenies of, and investigating phylogenetic relationships among, different species has also been growing over the last few years.
