A Whole Genome Assembly of the Horn Fly, Haematobia irritans, and Prediction of Genes with Roles in Metabolism and Sex Determination

May 2018

Kranti Konganti, Felix Guerrero, Faye Schilkey, Peter Ngam, et al.

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.
