One way to get an up-to-date view of molecular research on invasive species is by using NCBI's Entrez retrieval system. Any new DNA or amino acid sequences are required to be submitted to GenBank, and searching it is a great way to keep up on current work. This April, nucleotide sequences were submitted for many invasives, including tree of heaven (AIlanthus altissima), purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria), and the Chinese mitten crab (Eriocheir sinensis).
