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.

    Genes of viral origin in the Microplitis demolitor genome

      *Microplitis demolitor* (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is a parasitoid used as a biological control agent to control larval-stage Lepidoptera and serves as a model for studying the function and evolution of symbiotic viruses in the genus Bracovirus. Using RNA-Seq data for this species and manual annotation of genes of viral origin, we annotated a high-quality gene set including 171 virus-derived protein-coding genes.

      Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

        The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.

        GenSAS v5.1: A Web-Based Platform for Structural and Functional Annotation and Curation of Genomes

          The Genome Sequence Annotation Server (GenSAS) is an online platform that provides a pipeline for whole genome structural and functional annotation. Users can upload genome sequences and select from a variety of tools for repeat masking, prediction of gene models and other structural features as well as functional annotation tools. GenSAS integrates with JBrowse and Apollo to provide visualization and editing.

          Data from: Datasets for transcriptomic analyses of maize leaves in response to Asian corn borer feeding and/or jasmonic acid

            Corn's (*Zea mays*) response to initial insect damage involves a variety of changes to the levels of defensive enzymes, toxins, and communicative volatiles. Such a dramatic change secondary metabolism necessitates the regulation of gene expression at the transcript level. This *Data In Brief* paper summarizes the datasets of the transcriptome of corn plants in response to corn stalk borers (*Ostrinia furnacalis*) and/or methyl jasmonate (MeJA). Altogether, 39,636 genes were found to be differentially expressed.
