Data from: Integrating classical genetics with chromosome-scale genome assembly to characterize a genetic sexing system in Bactrocera cucurbitae (Diptera: Tephritidae)

    This data supports the manuscript "Integrating classical genetics with chromosome-scale genome assembly to characterize a genetic sexing system in Bactrocera cucurbitae (Diptera: Tephritidae)". The melon fly, Bactrocera cucurbitae, is a destructive agricultural pest and is the subject of strict quarantines that are enforced to prevent its establishment outside of its current geographic range. In addition to quarantine efforts, additional control measures are necessary for its eradication in the case of invasion to agriculturally rich areas. The sterile insect technique (SIT) has been effective in the control of several invertebrate pest species, and is part of a management strategy that regulatory agencies would like to expand to other important pests such as the melon fly.

    Onthophagus taurus Genome Annotations v0.5.3

      The Baylor College of Medicine recently sequenced and annotated the Onthophagus taurus genome as part of the i5k pilot project. 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.

      Annotated reference transcriptome for female Culicoides sonorensis biting midges

        Unigene sequences were annotated by BlastX alignment to the non-redundant protein database (National Center for Biotechnology Information/GenBank) and the Aedes aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus gene annotations (Vectorbase). This was done with a 1e-05 expectation value. Top hits are shown including accession numbers and description, if available. Unigene number and corresponding GenBank accession numbers are provided for all C. sonorensis genes.
