he goal of this study was to understand interactions between thrips, peanut genotypes, and TSWV in greater detail. Though a number of studies have biologically characterized these interactions, the underlying basis for such interactions at transcript/gene level has not yet been understood in detail. The premise behind undertaking this aspect of research is that, it would lay a foundation for identifying gene targets, which could be exploited for pest management down the road. Such an approach could lead to development of non-traditional pest management approaches that are more cost-effective and sustainable for peanut growers. We used transcriptomics to study tricomponent (thrips-TSWV­peanut) interactions.
