  1. The number of immune-related genes in insect species was obtained from NCBI databases (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2012.July) coupled with the available genome databases of the insect species: A. pisum (http://www.inra.fr/aphidbase/); B. mori (ftp://silkdb.org/pub/release_2.0/); D. melanogaster ftp.flybase.org/genomes/Drosophila_melanogaster/dmel_r5.27_FB2010_04/); A. gambiae (ftp.vectorbase.org/public_data/organism_data/agambiae/Geneset/) and A. mellifera (hymenopteragenome.org/drupal/sites/hymenopteragenome.org.beebase/files/data/).
