Manduca sexta, known as the tobacco hornworm or Carolina sphinx moth, is a lepidopteran insect that is used extensively as a model system for research in insect biochemistry, physiology, neurobiology, development, and immunity. One important benefit of this species as an experimental model is its extremely large size, reaching more than 10 g in the larval stage. M. sexta larvae feed on solanaceous plants and thus must tolerate a substantial challenge from plant allelochemicals, including nicotine.
This dataset presents the Manduca sexta Official Gene Set (OGS) v2.2. It is derived from Official Gene Sets OGSv2.0 and OGSv2.1. OGSv2.0 was modified to meet NCBI-GenBank quality review, resulting in OGSv2.1. This was deposited in NCBI GenBank (accession number AIXA00000000). OGS2.1 was lifted over to assembly JHU_Msex_v1.0/GCF_014839805.1 using the LiftOff (https://doi.org/10.1093/bioinformatics/btaa1016) and Genometools (http://genometools.org/) software, resulting in OGSv2.2. OGSv2.2 has quality issues due to the liftover - the i5k Workspace@NAL recommends NCBI Annotation Release 102 for general analysis, instead.
