I am working with termites and I have a set of genes that I would like to compare with a species similar to termites so that I could elucidate its function. I am looking for a species that is similar to what Drosophila Melanogaster is to bees where to elucidate the functions of bee genes, it is compared to genes in D. melanogaster. Or how most worm genes is compared to genes in C. elegans. Similarly, if there is a well studied termite species, I could work with that.

The ultimate goal is to create a gene network with termite genes, hopefully on STRING.

Apparently, the most closely related insect to termites is cockroaches. Interesting article I found on the subject. However, that still didn't help because cockroach genes are not included in the STRING database.
