The Baylor College of Medicine recently sequenced and annotated the Cimex lectularius genome as part of the i5k pilot project. The C. lectularius research community has manually reviewed and curated the computational gene predictions and generated an official gene set, OGSv1.2.
The bed bug, Cimex lectularius, is a model organism for understanding dermonecrotic envenomation (sphingomylinase D). A key focus of research to understand neurotic fractions in venom. The bed bug also provides appropriate phylogenetic sampling across diversity of order Araneae.
This dataset presents the Cimex lectularius gene set BCM_v_0.5.3, which was generated computationally. RNA-Seq data was used with additional protein homology data for a MAKER automated annotation of the Cimex lectularius genome assembly 1.0. Further annotation method details will be available in a forthcoming publication.
NOTE: This gene set is an unstable pre-release (v0.5.3), and was provided to facilitate manual curation and analyses before the official gene set is released. Gene identifiers from this gene set will likely not be maintained.
