The genome sequence of the Wolbachia endosymbiont that infects the nematode Brugia malayi has recently been determined together with three partial Wolbachia genomes from different Drosophila species. These data along with the previously published Wolbachia genome from Drosophila melanogaster provide new insights into how this endosymbiont has managed to become so successful.
