About the Project
The Cimex lectularius genome sequence and its analysis has been published in Nature Communications, "Unique features of a global human ectoparasite identified through sequencing of the bed bug genome."
We at the BCM-HGSC would like to thank the many members of the Cimex community whose hard work has made this a successful project.
Size (or size of nearest relative): 866 MBp
Keywords (and why important): Novel chemistry, evolutionary branching.
For the most current version of the assembly, please use 'NCBI BioProject' (find link below). If the assembly is unavailable in the BioProject page (it is still being worked on), you can look under the 'BCM-HGSC data' (find link below) for intermediate versions of the assembly.
