Researchers at the Smithsonian Institution published a high-quality draft genome, 16 transcriptomes, and a time-calibrated phylogeny for the assassin fly. They also include bioinformatics tools to help other scientists looking to produce similar resources for organisms without a reference genome. BluePippin was used to size RNA libraries prior to Illumina sequencing.
