Researchers sequenced, assembled, and annotated the genome of horn fly, a blood-feeding insect that preys on cattle. The 1.14 Gb assembly shows the fly is most closely related to Musca domestica and Drosophila melanogaster. BluePippin was used to size-select mate-pair libraries for genome and transcriptome sequencing using Illumina.
