Cimex Lectularius Genome Assembly 1.0

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 genome v1.0. This assembly version is the pre-release version, prior to filtering and quality control by the National Center for Biotechnology Information's GenBank resource: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/assembly?LinkName=bioproject_assembly_all&fr.... Assembly method details will be available in a forthcoming publication.
