Data from: Characterization of Adult Transcriptomes from the Omnivorous Lady Beetle Coleomegilla maculata Fed Pollen or Insect Egg Diet

    Expressed genes from two individual sibling specimens of *Coleomegilla maculata* (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). One individual was fed only insect eggs as an adult, and one was fed only pollen as an adult. Two sequenced samples, total RNA from a single individual adult specimen of *Coleomegilla maculata*, a beneficial lady beetle common in agroecosystems and native to North America. One sample was an adult fed only insect eggs (carnivore diet) and one sample was an adult fed only pollen (plant-based diet); insects were reared from the same egg mass (siblings), fed identical diet while in larval stage.

    Onthophagus taurus Genome Assembly 1.0

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