Oncopeltus fasciatus hybrid genome assembly 1.0

The milkweed bug, Oncopeltus fasciatus, was sequenced as part of the i5k pilot project from Baylor College of Medicine (Illumina data). To augment those resources, we present here a hybrid genome assembly with low coverage PacBio data, assembled with PBJelly: the Oncopeltus fasciatus Hybrid Genome Assembly v1.0.

Data from: Defensive aphid symbiont Hamiltonella defensa effects on Aphelinus glycinis and Aphelinus atriplicis

Aphelinus glycinis was collected in the Peoples Republic of China under a Memorandum of Understanding between their Ministry of Agriculture and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Aphelinus atriplicis was collected by employees of the USDA, Agricultural Research Service (ARS), in the Republic of Georgia with the permission of that government. The parasitoids were imported into the USDA, ARS, Beneficial Insect Introductions Research Unit containment facility in Newark, Delaware, under permits from the USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (Permit Numbers P526P-08-02142 and P526P-09-01929). No specific permissions were required to collect Aphis craccivora or Acyrthosiphon pisum because these are cosmopolitan aphids that occur in the field throughout North America. None of the species collected or studied are endangered or protected.

Homalodisca vitripennis genome annotations v0.5.3

The Homalodisca vitripennis genome was recently sequenced and annotated as part of the i5k pilot project by the Baylor College of Medicine. This dataset presents the Homalodisca vitripennis 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.
